Magic of Cinema will resume in Winter quarter.

Thursday, March 5, 2015 - 2:00pm

March 6, 2015 at 7pm in Maier Performance Hall

These films are documentaries about food and farming.  There will be a panel discussion and Q&A after the films. All proceeds will be donated to our co-sponsor, the Port Angeles Food Bank.

The films are:

The New Green Giants. Directed by Ted Remerowski (2013), this 47-minute documentary looks at some of the bigger questions surrounding organic food. Is it really healthier? Is it truly organic? Is it possible to grow from a mom-and-pop operation to become a huge supplier of major grocery chains? Is it actually sustainable? Is it realistic to think the world can be fed organically? The film reveals the complex and controversial world of today's organic food industry.

Big or Small? Directed by Alex Gabbay (2012), 29m minutes. Economies of scale suggest that bigger is better when it comes to feeding a hungry planet.  But there is a price to "big" that's not factored in at the checkout counter and, as a consequence, a "small farmer" revolution is unfolding in many rich countries, including the United States. The film asks: what's the best method of growing food for a hungry population of 9.5 billion people? Big, or small?

General admission is $5; free with a student ID. Magic of Cinema is sponsored by the Peninsula College Associated Student Council.
