The producers of the documentary film Sustainable are expected to be on hand Tuesday evening when the Kewaunee CARES organization hosts a screening of their film in Sturgeon Bay.
Matt Wechsler and Annie Speicher of Hourglass Films will attend the screening, which begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Crossroads of Big Creek.
According to the website sustainablefoodfilm.com:
A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.
The narrative of the film focuses on Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his profitless wasteland and pioneers the sustainable food movement in Chicago.
“Sustainable” was screened at more than 20 film festivals around the world and won the 2016 Accolade Global Humanitarian Award for Outstanding Achievement.
