Carnish Culture: Levi's Presents Big Night

If you are a frequent ChocoMeat reader then you've probably noticed my recent posts about the Levi's Film Workshop inside the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and this past month's extensive FOOD X FILM programming all over town. This past Thursday saw the culmination of the food/art/film/music awesomeness with the live premiere of the three short films that were created entirely during the run, each focusing on a different aspect of the local food movement: Growing, Preparing, and Serving.

To illustrate these points, notable filmmakers were matched with food world heavyweights, and with the help of class participants at the Workshop produced the following films, available now to view online. Enjoy!

Art in the Streets associate curator Aaron Rose and acclaimed music supervisor Randall Poster celebrate the Margaret Kilgallen Memorial Farm (built outside the Workshop at MOCA), a site-specific edible “bike farm” that includes organic fruit and vegetables and utilizes a combination of traditional planter boxes and mobile planters on bikes. The farm was designed by San Francisco-based artists Futurefarmers and is tended by Tara Kolla of Silver Lake Farms.
