The 15th annual Film Feastival will feature a documentary screening and discussion about the intersection of environmental, food, and social justice as relates to the Louisiana & South East region. With the recent hurricane Ida, it is more important than ever, that we understand the threats climate change and environmental disasters have had on the communities in this region.
The documentary "After the Spill" takes a look at how the oil and gas industry has historically dominated Louisiana politics and is largely responsible for the state's rapidly disappearing coastline.
The three panelists all work in Louisiana and will discuss the film, in addition to their personal and professional relationship to food systems, community organizing, and social justice.
