Free Chipotle Food and Film Screening in Boulder – Feb 21 and Denver Feb 22




The issues around how we raise and distribute meat in this country don’t come in neatly shrink-wrapped packages, as documentary filmmaker Graham Meriwether learned when he set out to make “American Meat.” The movie explores challenges facing chicken, hog and cattle farmers, whether organic or conventional.  To that end, he is showing the film on college campuses across the country and in the Denver area this week (in Boulder  on Thursday, February 21, 2013), luring viewers with the promise of free Chipotle burritos at each screening.

“One thing that I’ve heard said is that food pitches a pretty broad tent and we’re all under that tent. Food is something that’s devoid of political affiliation,” said Meriwether in an interview Monday. Food in and of itself might not be “Dem” or “GOP,” but issues of subsidies, access and how it’s raised, harvested and processed are certainly political.

Meriwether hopes that his film “doesn’t alienate anyone and starts a constructive conversation about agriculture today and in the years ahead. The film advocates for grass-based meat production, however we’re not saying that’s the only solution.”  CLICK HERE FOR INFO
