What's On Your Plate premieres at Berlin Film Festival

Catherine Gund's documentary "What's On Your Plate" (edited by Nancy Kennedy) premieres at the Berlin Film Festival February 13th at 9:00am! Congrats everyone on the WOYP team!

"WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE? is a witty and provocative documentary produced and directed by award-winning Catherine Gund about kids and food politics.

Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old African-American city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates."
