Food Patriots

1h 13m

Many consumers are concerned about the disconnect between food and health. Touched by their high school football player son’s battle with an antibiotic resistant super-bug filmmakers Jeff and Jennifer Spitz take a closer look at what is in their food and what anyone can do to make healthier choices in their own homes, schools and communities. This film shows how one family tries to shift away from fast, processed food-like substances and toward more fresh, local and organic choices. Their many questions set the course for a journey of discovery. With humor and humility the filmmakers show how a small 10% change in what you eat and what you buy at the grocery store can lead to big results. Featuring a diverse cast, including urban farmers, chefs and athletes, the documentary celebrates a movement and educates the next generation of consumers. ‘Award of Excellence’ Indie Fest 2014, ‘Gold Award’ Oregon International Film Festival 2014, ‘Humanitarian Award’ Global Film Award 2014.
