Fast Meets Slow
This Thursday, the Music Hall‘s Wild Card film series presents the movie Fast Food Nation, a docudrama adaptation of Eric Schlosser‘s hard-hitting nonfiction book on the ubiquitous American fast food industry. In settings ranging from ranches to restaurants to meatpacking plants, the movie gives an expansive overview of how all those burgers and fries ended up on all those plastic trays. If you don’t like what you see, a panel discussion following the movie will concentrate on delicious alternatives. Susan Tuveson of Cacao Chocolates in Kittery and Evan Mallett of Lindbergh’s Crossing will offer up some ‘cooking as theatre,’ creating a dish right onstage featuring local eggs, potatoes, onions, and herbs. There’ll be tasting for all. Rounding out the discussion will be Garen Heller of Back River Farm, John Forti and Michelle Moon of Slow Food Seacoast, and the UNH Office of Sustainability. Film at 7:30, tasting and dicussion afterward. Please come down!
