New York City Premiere of the documentary film American Meat

For all you meat lovers, and those within the NYC area, there will be a premiere of the documentary film American Meat, which looks at our nation's meat industry through the eyes of farmers all over the country.

The event will take place on Monday, April 15th at Cinema Village: 22 East 12th Street, New York, NY (between 5th Ave & University Place). The film begins at 7pm and runs until about 8:15pm, and it will be followed by a panel discussion which features special guest Richard Morris, who left a corporate career to work for Joel Salatin???s Polyface Farms; Just Food's CSA Program Manager Paula Lukats; Bushwick Food Cooperative "Meat Mastermind" Amanda Pitts; and Alan and Nancy Brown of Lewis Waite Farm, a farm in Upstate New York that is home to 100 percent grass fed beef and pastured pigs. Director of American Meat Graham Meriwether will moderate the discussion.

Following the screening of American Meat, the conversation will continue over food and drink at farm-to-table restaurant Jimmy???s No. 43, located just a few blocks away from the theater at 43 E 7th Street. Jimmy???s will be offering appetizer specials made with heritage pork meat from Flying Pigs Farm, one of the farms featured in American Meat.

I have no monetary or other connected interest in the film except that I do buy meats from one of the panel participants. Just thought this might be of interest to the Paleo community.

[EDIT] If you could ask the meat panel one question, what would it be?

I edited the question (hope that was okay!) I am one of the panelists on the 15th. They have panels on other days, if you cant make this one. I just ordered another half cow and more pastured pork for the Bushwick Food Coop :)

Lewis Waite Farm (one of the panel participants). I'm in Westchester, but I know they deliver to a number of locations within the City. You can find them online and if you look under their CSA related page you can should be able to see a list of their delivery locations. Or just contact them directly, they are very friendly. (They also coordinate their services with a number of other upstate farms and meat producers.

Wasn't sure about the post but figured I would try. Not really familiar with reedit.

You should ask the community a question related to the event or the meat industry. Otherwise, your post may be closed. If you just want to spread the word you might post on reddit/paleo.

Is movie going to be out on dvd or Netflix? If I had one question for the panel it would be what do they think is the future of the meat industry. Will people continue to eat almost exclusively conventional meat? Or will grassfed/humane become more available to the average person? Or will it take a completely different direction, with more people giving up animal products completely?

Thanks. I will miss the premier but look forward to the movie to appearing on Netflix.

From which farm do you get meat? I live in Brooklyn and am looking for a meat source.
