Come listen to Director, Producer, and Editor, Thibaut Fagonde discuss his upcoming film Overalls & Aprons. Fagonde will show clips from the film and lead a stimulating Q&A about the question, "Is Farm to Table Sustainable?". Guest speakers include: Glenn Roberts, Founder of Anson Mills and Antonio Quiros M.D., Division Chief Pediatric GI Nutrition at MUSC Children’s Hospital.
Overalls and Aprons explores the sustainability of local farmers, livestock producers, and fisheries in the Lowcountry community of Charleston, SC. The story is told through the lens of 10 celebrated local chefs who are committed to restoring the cultural culinary landscape and identity of their regional foodways in support of the health and longevity of a true localized food system. The film observes the critical importance of why chefs seek out local ingredients and how their relationships with local producers inform each other’s professions. The chefs’ call to action for quality ingredients has created popular demand and reawakened the cravability and spirit of cultivating a local farm culture and culinary identity.
The rich agricultural history of the South plays a “main character” in the film. Visual portraits of the interaction of interlinked communities working in support of strengthening the sustainable local food infrastructure provide a transparency to the “movement” of seed to plate.
The film investigates the benefits as well as the constraints of communities investing in localized food systems. The film also delves into the issues of whether the geographical landscape, ecology, health, and socio-economic benefits outweigh the constraints for this type of food system to remain a viable option for all.
