Price: $3-5 Suggested Donation

Screening Times: 2:10pm, 4:10pm, 7:00pm

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack! Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

There will be a reception for movie-goers following the 7pm showing at Harvest Restaurant. Please join us for a glass of wine and small bites from the kitchen. Harvest is located two blocks from the Louisville Film Society at 624 East Market. Harvest is a locally grown restaurant featuring farmer to fork cuisine.
