Social Justice Movie Night at University of Montevallo

MONTEVALLO—The University of Montevallo will host Social Justice Movie Night on Monday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m., in the Merchants and Planters Bank Auditorium in Comer Hall on the UM campus. Sponsored by the university’s Social Work program, the Environmental Studies program and the UM Environmental Club, the evening will include a screening of Eating Alabama as well as refreshments made from locally grown food prepared and served by students from the Environmental Club and the Sustainability Banquet course. The event, funded by the UM Green Fund, is free and open to the public.

According to the Eating Alabama website, the film “tells the story of a young couple who, in search of a simpler life, returns to their home state of Alabama, where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as they navigate the agricultural industrial complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, Eating Alabama is a story about why food matters.”

Following the screening, director of Eating Alabama, Andy Grace, will hold a question-and-answer session.
