FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur's 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

If you were one of the millions of people who saw the Oscar nominated Food Inc last year then stop reading now. You have already seen this film.
Fresh is an almost direct rehash of several portions of the film Food Inc but with less style and grainy video. Many of the interviewees are bland and just repeating the message they purveyed in last year's smash success.
When you watch a documentary about activism you want there to be a plausible outline for success, a way to turn the system - Fresh does not deliver anything but facts and they are as bland as the food they are against.
While the message is clear and the facts are staggering we have heard it all before and that is why Fesh rates just a 5 out of 10
