One Earth Film Festival: "At the  Fork"
Saturday, March 4, 2017 - 2:30pm to 5:00pm

See "At the Fork," a film that offers a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife, Lisa, ask the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk, and baby-back rib. What they discover are not heartless industrialists, but America's farmers -- real people who are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food. 
Now in its sixth year, One Earth Film Festival is the Midwest's premier environmental film festival, creating opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability, and the power of human involvement. A production of Green Community Connections, the festival screens films in locations around Chicagoland and runs March 3-12.
