            This is a short film I shot while in Ethiopia this summer. It is an attempt to portray some of the poverty and injustice in Africa and provide a window into a world unbeknown to most people. The world is broken. It breaks my heart seeing all the needs and hurts of this world. However, we are responsible for what we have seen. We need to live everyday in awareness of this fact. --------------- The dump in the film is located in Korah, one of the poorest slum areas in all of Addis. It was once considered the outskirts of the city and was the place where all the outcasts (the sick, lepers, homeless, and unwanted) resided. The women and children who are picking trash sell each bag for roughly 3 burr, which is equivalent to 25 cents. Some of them even live in cardboard houses on the dump. Find more info here: http://help4korah.blogspot.com/ All the men and women who were weaving in the film were in a leprosy hospital. The hospital was funded by an organization called ALERT. ALERT provides one of the only hospitals in Ethiopia that performs surgery for impairments caused by leprosy. They also help develop skills and provide jobs to those affected by leprosy. These people were making rugs and garments to sell at markets. --------------- www.jeremysnell.com flickr.com/​photos/​jermfestphotography facebook.com/​pages/​Jeremy-Snell-Photography/​156303407527 http://twitter.com/jeremysnell ---------------

                DIVE! a film by Jeremy Seifert www.divethefilm.com music by Timmy Vatterott www.timmyvatterott.com Available on DVD and iTunes now at www.divethefilm.com Grocery stores around the country are filling their dumpsters with food. Not rotten, spoiled food, but billions of pounds of good, edible food. Why? Because the expiration date is nearing? Because it costs less to simply throw away excess food rather than do something helpful with it? Whatever the answer, the contradiction is profound: good, edible food is being thrown away in the very same communities where people are going hungry. Follow filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and his circle of friends as they “dumpster dive” in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of L.A.’s supermarkets. In the process, they uncover thousands of dollars worth of good food and an ugly truth about waste in America: grocery stores know they are wasting and most refuse to do anything about it. In the meantime, Seifert and friends no longer spend money on groceries. With nothing more than a big appetite and a strong stomach, they “dive” for Pacific Salmon, American Ground Beef, New Zealand Lamb Chops, Free-Range Whole Chickens, Pork Loins, and loads of fresh fruit, vegetables, and bread. Totally edible, totally free, and totally illegal. Why aren’t grocery stores giving the food to people who need it? Seifert takes this question to corporate front offices in an attempt to find out. The result is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism, and call to action. The power of the film lies in its ability to motivate: it will move you to question the manager at your supermarket; it will move you to learn about food waste and the role it plays in your community. In the end, you might even find yourself in a dumpster. http://divethefilm.com

                    Short documentary film / www.diaryofhunger.com / https://twitter.com/diaryofhunger -Premiere 16th of May 2014 at Festival OFFF Barcelona. -Official selection IDFA 2014 -El Ojo de Iberoamérica 2014 / Bronze Best Direction – New Formats Requests for asylum throughout the European Union have increased, while in the three southern border countries, Italy, Spain and Greece, they have significantly decreased. However, it is in these countries where “border externalization policies”, promoted by the European Union as a whole, are being implemented with most force. These policies prioritize the obsession with border security and control over humanitarian issues or matters related to the rights of migrants and refugees. We watch the daily news, we are updated nowadays about every scandal thanks to social media, we learn about world’s most terrifying truth behind closed doors, doors that may never open until someone has the courage to showcase what human beings really go through. But how does it feel to perceive this information? Do we really get it “stuck” in our head or do we just receive the information “meaninglessly”? A “Diary of Hunger” is a true story. An everyday true story. Now, what do we want to do about it? Are we going to accept this tragedy? www.diaryofhunger.com Director: Mireia Pujol / Executive Producer: Rafael Montilla / Production: Agosto / DoP: Borja López / Camera Assistant: Sergio Da Eira / Sound: Alejandro Gianni Tognarelli / Editor: Lucas Nolla / Colorist: Xavi Santolaya / Consulting and Production: Sergi Cámara and Blasco de Avellaneda / Linguistic Advice: Agnés Agboton, Manuel Serrat, Delphine Kouakou / Transaltion: Bea Omist / Post-Producer: Daniela Borges / Prod.

                      This video was made to support the "Eat the View" campaign, a citizen-powered effort to petition (http://www.eattheview.org/petition) the next President to show leadership on global issues such as climate change and food security by converting part of the White House's 18 acre grounds back into an edible landscape. It made sense in the past for the "First Family" to eat foods grown close to home and - given the climate challenge - it makes sense again. It features me, Roger Doiron, digging a new organic garden on my white house lawn with an invitation to the next President to do the same.
