Growing food in the Arctic Circle is not an easy task.
But Director Caroline Cox’s new film “Food for the Rest of Us,” tells the story of people who are doing just that.
The film tells the story of food growers in four communities, Tuktoyaktuk, Colorado, Hawaii and Kansas City.
All the growing projects are connected to a social movement.
Some use their food to support the Black Lives Matter movement, while the Tuktoyaktuk growers are using food growing to combat the loss of their traditional lifestyles due to climate change.
Cox hopes the documentary will be used in schools as an educational tool, and make people think about where their food comes from.
The film is slated to be screened at the Doxa International Documentary Festival.
Normally the annual event is held in Vancouver, but is being streamed virtually this year from May 6 to 16.
