In Defence of Food

We have the pleasure of inviting you to a special film screening within the series Films for Food. This time we will watch a documentary “In Defence of Food” directed by Michael Schwarz.

June 8th, 6 PM, Forum Cinema, tickets: 20 zł, available at the Forum Cinema box office and online.

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants” – with this seven-word maxim, journalist Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by today’s industrially driven Western diet.

“In Defense of Food” debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Travelling the globe and the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto”, Pollan offers a clear answer to one of the most perplexing and urgent questions of our time: what should I eat to be healthy?

Based on extensive research, “In Defence of Food” offers viewers simple, practical advice throughout the film about how to eat healthier, such as “don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food”, “eat only foods that will eventually rot” and “treat meat as a flavouring or special occasion food”. It is indispensable viewing for anyone interested in the relationship between food and health.

Before the show we invite the audience to a special meal made from local products, and Joanna Jakubiuk’s story about real food and where to find it most easily. After the show, at 8 PM, at Dobra Zmiana Bistro a thematic dinner will be organized. Tickets for the dinner available at the Bistro at the price of 80 zł.
