Description of the Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary:
In Baltimore, a city where supermarkets are scarce and diet-related diseases are common, a group of artists set out to explore the city’s systems of food production and distribution. On a journey that takes them to community gardens, warehouses, a fish-farm and corner stores, the Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary team investigates why the dominant food system is falling short for so many of Baltimore’s residents, and finds hope for a brighter food future in unexpected corners of the city.
