1. Where Has the Food Gone?
    Forty percent of the food that is produced in the United States goes to waste along the production chain even as a significant portion of the population continues to go hungry. Food waste is an issue that affects all, as the decomposition of food waste in landfills releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, making it a major contributor to climate change. Where Has the Food Gone? examines the consequences of food waste, how to reduce it, how food can be repurposed, and the groups in Santa Barbara that are making these changes happen.

  3. Harvesting Fire: California’s New Normal
    While the Thomas Fire affected the lives of many people throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties, few narratives highlight the devastating impacts of California’s second largest wildfire on some of its most vulnerable communities: farm workers and undocumented families. Harvesting Fire: California’s New Normal is a short documentary about the impacts California’s fire season has had on these marginalized groups and how everyday citizens are stepping in to support them. By following the stories of seemingly disparate but connected local activists, the film aims to capture not only the trials and tribulations but also the resiliency of the 805 community in the wake of the Thomas Fire.
