THE FILM

CinemaGreen -Ingredients-film
Writer, Director and Editor: Robert Bates
Producer: Brian Kimmel

As American food nears a state of crisis, INGREDIENTS explores a thriving local food movement where community, food-safety and flavor are commonplace.

A feature-length documentary narrated by Bebe Neuwirth, the film takes us across the United States, from the urban food deserts of Harlem to the diversified farms of the Hudson River and Willamette Valleys to the kitchens of celebrated chefs Alice Waters, Peter Hoffman and Greg Higgins. INGREDIENTS is a journey that reveals the people who are bringing good food back to the table, and the myriad ways we all can eat better.

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 balance.
