Quick Bites

Join the UVA Food Collaborative at the Virginia Film Festival Friday and Sunday as we co-sponsor two important food films:

November 5, 2013

by: Emily Sydnor
Pride and Joy
Friday, November 8, 6:15 pm
Culbreth Theater

Pride and Joy documents the intersection of food culture, tradition and history in the American South. Through the stories of people and places—from the Alabama shrimper to the Georgia cattleman—the film explores the importance of food to Southern identity. How and why do traditional foodways endure? As the South’s ethnic and racial makeup shifts, how do regional foodways change?
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with film director Joe York,  Leni Sorensen, (culinary and cultural historian) Jamie Ross (Agee films), Judy Mickelson (local historian), Travis Milton (chef, Comfort Restaurant) and Christine Gyovai (UVA).

More Than Honey
Sunday, November 10, 7pm
Newcomb Theater

Over the past 15 years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remain unknown. Depending on the world region, 50% to 90% of all local bees have disappeared, and this epidemic is still spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. This film explores the causes and consequences of the outbreak, known as colony collapse disorder, and explains why the continued survival of the honey bee is essential to human survival. Professor Manuel Lerdau of the Department of Environmental Science will lead a discussion following the film.
