Food and farming film festival

The Knight Center for Science and Environmental Journalism at UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism is sponsoring a provocative weekly film festival about the ramifications of food production. Each week brings different films, topics and speakers, including Michael Pollan with a sneak preview of “King Corn”; a panel on corn, farm subsidies, rural communities and the Food Bill; and experts Anuradha Mittal and Michael Watts, who is a UC professor of African studies and geography, discussing the international politics of food supply and global commodities trade after the film “Darwin’s Nightmare.” The free programs take place at various UC Berkeley locations. You can hop on to the series on Oct. 11 for two documentaries, “Our Daily Bread” (pictured) and “We Feed the World” followed by a discussion on global vs. local and the divergence of food culture, with Acme Bread founder Steve Sullivan.

The Oct. 11 program is at the Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar St. adjacent to the campus. All programs begin at 6:45 p.m. Visit www.agrariana.org for more information.
