7pm Thursday, March 24, 2011 – Lincoln Theatre
Skagit Panel and Premiere Screening of Lunch Line
Washington State premiere of Lunch Line, a documentary about the school lunch program in the United States. The film follows the history of this government funded program and presents the challenges of serving highly nutritious food to children for a low cost. In one hour we learn about the politics of hunger and agriculture, and begin to think about food, social justice and compromise. Join us as we watch this important film and hear from a panel of folks who are working on changing the face of school lunch in Skagit County.
One of the film makers, Ernie Park, will be present to share some of his experiences with the film’s creation.
Ernie Park received his PhD from NYU. He has taught and written on a variety of subjects within film and media studies, and has directed a number of documentaries. His work with Uji Films has aired nationally and internationally in more than 100 countries. His film, AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY, premiered on The Documentary Channel and NYC-TV in 2008. He co-directed YOUNG ARABS with Michael Graziano, which screened in numerous festivals throughout the country and received a number of awards. They recently completed a short documentary on urban Native Americans, which will air internationally in the next few months.
