Dive! is a documentary focusing on the alarming waste problem in the United States., 26 February 2012
Author: bree5678 from United States

Film maker Jeremy Seifert takes the viewers on an eye opening journey into the dumpsters of America. This personal narrative film shows how one family's desire to live a sustainable life could be the answer to help millions of Americans who face hunger.

The purpose of this film is not to encourage people to eat from dumpsters but is to address the larger issue of the staggering amount of waste in the United States. The film leaves you feeling unsettled yet inspired, as you find out that over 50% of all food produced ends up in dumpsters.

I enjoyed that Jeremy shows how his family, friends and others are able to live off grocery store cast offs, but he does not preach or push his opinions. His thoughts are presented to inform the viewer in a very sincere manner. He is able to highlight his personal crusade and responsibility we have to our earth.

If you want a movie that will leave you informed and empowered with knowledge, this is a good watch. You will be alarmed and armed with the statistics and data that is presented. This filmmaker has done his homework to provide valid information to support his quest. However, what this film does lack is the reality of real change to occur on a global level.

It left me feeling frustrated that there is an unattainable answer to the hunger and waste problem in the United States. This film will leave you questioning our societal views and respect for the earth's resources.
