Edible City

Grow the Revolution

"Edible City" is a 55 minute documentary film that introduces a diverse cast of extraordinary characters who are challenging the paradigm of our broken food system.

"Edible City", is an exciting introduction to the 'good food' movement. The film presents a spectrum of activists, initiatives and committed citizens who show how every human being can contribute to the transformation of our food system: exposing poor administration, spreading knowledge, building up local economic cycles - finding hopeful solutions to monumental problems.
