American Meat

When: Mon., Feb. 25 2013

On the heels of Food, Inc. and countless other sustainable-food films comes the latest sobering look into American agriculture: American Meat screens at 5 tonight in the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' Berger Hall (1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy., That's ahead of the film's formal April theatrical release in New York City, and in tandem with community screenings under way nationwide. Once again, Joel Salatin of Polyface farms (pictured below) stands front and center as the film looks into domestic livestock production concerns "through the eyes of the farmers." Fittingly, local farm and agriculture faces Mike Callicrate of Ranch Foods Direct and Susan Gordon of Venetucci Farm will lead a panel discussion after the film. The following night, American Meat screens again in the Cornerstone Arts Center at Colorado College (825 N. Cascade Ave.) at 6:30, preceded at 6 by a meet-and-greet and followed by a panel discussion. Both events are free. — Matthew Schniper
