The Fruit Hunters
Date: Thursday, November 21
Pre-show reception, 6:45pm
Film showing 7:30pm
Description: Join us and the The MV Flim Center for a special evening of autumn fruits and cinematic odyssey through nature and commerce. You can find them deep in the jungles of Borneo, in the hills of Umbria and perhaps even in your own back yard. They are fruit hunters, the subjects of the dizzying new film from acclaimed director Yung Chang (Up the Yangtze, China Heavyweight). THE FRUIT HUNTERS travels across culture, history, and geography to show how intertwined we are with the fruits we eat. The ranks of the fruit-obsessed include adventurers, scientists, fruit detectives and even movie star Bill Pullman, fruit hunters dedicating themselves to searching for and saving rare and exotic fruit, and to creating a Garden of Eden in a world increasingly dominated by industrialized monoculture. THE FRUIT HUNTERS will change not only the way we look at what we eat but how we view our relationship to the natural world.
