Produced by Eva Longoria, this film will never have you look at a tomato the same way again! Even though there is more interest in food these days than ever, there is very little interest in the hands that pick it.

Vanishing Of The Bees
Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.
Kiss The Ground
With Woody Harrelson, Jason Mraz and other activists, Kiss the Ground reveals that by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize the Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle. This movie is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible – to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species future.
Just Eat It
We all love food. We devour countless cooking shows, food magazines and foodie blogs. We celebrate our marriages, religious beliefs and birthdays over food. The question is, “why are we throwing away nearly half of it away?” Follow Jen and Grant as they explore the chain of food waste from farm to the “back of the fridge”. Along their journey they question “sell by dates”, perfect produce and portion sizes, while pledging to survive only on (pre-consumer) foods that would otherwise be thrown away.
Director Kelly Noonan Gores’ documentary will take you on a scientific and spiritual journey to discover that your thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal.

The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe (see our Fish Bowl “Foundation”). This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.
