Over nine months, Mischa Hedges and Digital Sense Productions traveled the west coast to learn more about our food system. During production, he found that the standard methods of producing food do not take environmental or human health costs into consideration. He also explored the many alternatives to the current agricultural system. Sustainable Table includes interviews with: Howard Lyman: Author of "Mad Cowboy" Kenneth Williams: Champion Vegan Bodybuilder Fred Kirschenmann, PhD: Fellow, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture Marc Grossman: Spokesman for United Farm Workers Actors/activists Ed Begley Jr., James Cromwell and many more. Digital Sense worked with individuals representing The Sierra Club, P.E.T.A., The University of California at Davis, Organic Valley Dairy Farms, Chapman University and many others while producing this film. The result is a documentary that takes an unadulterated look into the food you eat. VIEWER QUOTES "...it all goes down with little sense of ... Written by
I am disappointed with Sustainable Table: What's on Your Plate (2006) by Mischa Hedges. Instead of convincing me I should be a vegan and consider the environmental impacts of my food choices, I feel attacked for being an omnivore. The documentary covers five sections: resources, farm workers, farm animals, plant based diet and sustainable food systems. Being a one sided film it was very informative regarding the positives of sustainability on our farms and how positive the effects could be on society however it misses the other side of the argument.
I would consider this film appropriate for school age children but would use caution for part 3, farm animals. Overall, I wouldn't watch this video again nor use it in my own classroom, there are far too many other options that are more convincing.
