INGREDIENTS empowers and sparks the joy
of discovery in creating a healthier, more sustainable
model for living and eating well in a world in need of
At the focal point of this movement, and of this film, are
the farmers and chefs who are creating a truly sustainable
food system. Their collaborative work has resulted in
great tasting food and an explosion of consumer awareness
about the benefits of eating local.
Attention being paid to the local food movement comes at a
time when the failings of our current industrialized food
system are becoming all too clear. For the first time in
history, our children's generation is expected to have a
shorter lifespan than our own. The quality, taste and
nutritional value of the food we eat has dropped sharply
over the last fifty years. Shipped from ever-greater
distances, we have literally lost sight of where our food
comes from and in the process we've lost a vital
connection to our local community and to our health.
A feature-length documentary, INGREDIENTS illustrates how
people are working to revitalize that connection. Narrated
by Bebe Neuwirth, the film takes us from the diversified
farms by the rivers and lush valleys to the urban food
deserts of the cities and to the kitchens of celebrated
chefs Alice Waters, Peter Hoffman and Greg Higgins.
INGREDIENTS is a journey that reveals the people behind
the movement to bring good food back to the table and
health back to our communities.
'Thank you for this tremendous film. You tackle some of
the most critical issues we face. INGREDIENTS could not
have come at a better time.?'
- Sam Kass, chef to Barack and Michele Obama
'Local food is the most interesting trend of our
time--towards the real, away from the fake; towards
work, away from convenience. Towards satisfaction, away
from gratification. This film captures the intrigue.?'
- Bill McKibben, author of 'Deep Economy'
