More about the films:
New Orleans:
Twelve years ago Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, Louisiana. Meet the farmers growing a more resilient future in the face of climate change. Join Jabari Brown of Grow Dat Youth Farm and Marguerite Green of Press Street Gardens as they share the triumphs and challenges of rebuilding the city's food system from the ground up.

California:
California has the largest farming economy in the United States, but climate change is threatening to change that. Years of severe drought have left small farmers feeling the squeeze as they walk the tightrope between sustainability and financial viability. Hear from them in their own words as they connect the dots between development, water rights, and food justice. Will their farms be able to survive the impending climate crisis?

More about this film:
Ryori (Cuisine in Japanese) is a Stop Motion Animated Film that depicts an Ojizo San Statue (guardian of the wayside) coming from within the forest to have a Shojin Ryori meal. Shojin Ryori is the traditional dining style of Buddhist Monks in Japan, the cuisine is made without meat, fish or other animal products. The film animates the process of cooking with elements of change in nature. So as to highlight the interconnectedness between cuisine and the environment. The components of a Shojin Ryori meal are based on the idea of balance. The rule of five is created between five colors and flavors in a meal; green, yellow, red, black and white as well as sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. This balance in color and flavor is believed to provide nutritional balance while also bringing the body into balance with the seasons.

More about this film:
Growing for Good is a 15-minute documentary film that spotlights the efforts of urban farmers Arthur and Nancy Culbert, who planted the initial seed that became the Central West End Farm in St. Louis. Their mission is to eliminate hunger within their own community by growing organic vegetables and fruit for members of local food pantries. They also partner with a neighborhood elementary school giving students the opportunity to plant and harvest fresh produce for people in need.

Our Story

Faces of Hunger (FOH) is dedicated to increasing awareness of food security issues in the United States of America and abroad through film. We are looking for critical discussion and responses to the social and political structures surrounding food insecurity, quality and waste. FOH was created by Palms for Life Fund, a NYC based non-profit that works globally with organizations on-the-ground to provide access to food, water, education, and sanitation. We have set up mobile libraries for streetchildren in Ecuador, brought literacy to undermined women farmers in Burkina Faso, and built toilets in Nicaragua to improve school sanitation. With a grant from the European Union, we are now providing sustainable, quality services to the most vulnerable children in Swaziland. With regards to the United States, human rights issues aren’t confined to developing countries. In 2015, one in seven Americans experienced food insecurity; up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten every year; and because of the obesity rate, the current generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. In one of the world’s most developed countries, such food issues should not exist. Through FOH we call upon students and filmmakers to explore solutions and shed light on this hidden reality.
