The emphasis in creating the film 'Ripe for Change' was to connect the growers with the consumers, to put a face on the producers of what we eat - while bringing us into a deeper discussion of the issues that face us both."

Jed Riffe, filmmaker

Ripe for Change explores the intersection of food and politics and examines a host of questions about the future of our food. Filmmakers Emiko Omori and Jed Riffe have won Emmys and documentary awards at Sundance, the Munich International Film Festival and more. Now they focus on the hidden costs and hazards of fast foods and factory farms, as well as showing tasty, organic alternatives. Featuring Alice Waters of Chez Panisse and a host of small farmers, teachers and community marketers.

Q&A to follow: An informal discussion with filmmaker Jed Riffe; New Orleans Edible Schoolyard Program Director Donna Cavato; deputy director Darlene Wolnik; and Anne Spurrier with the Crescent City Farmers Market.

Come early: 5 p.m. information tables by the NOLA Edible Schoolyard and; film showing at 5:30 p.m.; followed by a Q&A.
