Otherwise, ILEIA, FIAN and Movie W are joint organisers of the film festival ‘Food 4 All – Hungry For Justice’. During this special documentary festival on october 7th, 8th and 9th , you’ll make a cinematographic tour of sustainable food systems and agro-ecology. On three consecutive evenings we are showing films on this topical subject. These will be evenings of revealing facts, hopeful messages and attractive images. Each screening will be followed by an discussion session between a speaker and the audience. The discussion on the third evening will be conducted in English by filmdirector Benny Vink. Come and be inspired. The future of our food system is at stake. Tickets are only € 2.
The best way of knowing where your food comes from is to grow it yourself. Chef Jonathan Karpathios grows his own vegetables, tends his own greenhouse and keeps his own pigs. Anything he can’t produce himself, he sources locally. It’s his way of saving the world. In Tomorrow’s Food, filmmaker Benny Vink beautifully captures Jonathan’s vision. There is a great deal wrong with the current food system. Meat consumption has disastrous consequences for the environment, and we eat too much food, too much fat and too much from the other side of the world. You can sit back and do nothing, or you can try to lead by example. The chef opted for the latter. In his restaurant Vork & Mes, he knows the origin of everything in his kitchen.
Jonathan’s menu is determined by what nature has to offer, not what diners demand. His ambition is not to earn a Michelin star but to change the way people think about food. With contagious enthusiasm, he introduces his suppliers. In the greenhouse near the restaurant, he lovingly grows beetroots, carrots, tomatoes and potatoes. “Products become more meaningful when you experience how much time and energy it takes to grow them,” he says. Compelling viewing that makes you want to pull on a pair of wellies and get your hands dirty.
