The Manzanita Film Series is proud to present DIVE! Living Off America’s Waste on Saturday August 28th at 7pm. In lieu of our regular admission fee, we are asking for donations to the North County Food bank of 2 cans or packages of non-perishable food, or a $5 donation.
Every year in America we throw away 96 billion pounds of food.
That’s 263 million pounds a day.
11 million pounds an hour.
3,000 pounds a second.
Inspired by a curiosity about our country’s careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles’ supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food – resulting in an eye-opening documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action.
DIVE! has garnered critical praise while raising important questions about hunger and waste in our society. This is Seifert’s first film and has been warmly received by audiences across the country, winning thirteen festivals thus far, including the Boulder International, Sedona International, DC Independent, and Oxford Film Festivals.
The Manzanita Film Series is a program of the Hoffman Center in Manzanita, Oregon. Films are screened on the 4th weekend of the month through out the year. Admission is typically $6 and theater concessions, as well as beer and wine, are available for purchase. Please contact Franz Hasslacher, at firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer opportunities.
