Ann Arbor, MI

‘American Meat’ makes its Michigan debut on Sat., Mar. 10, at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor.  The film, an official selection of Food Day 2011, explains our current industrial meat system, and shows the feedlots and confinement operations, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there.  The story shifts to Polyface Farms, where grass-based farmer Joel Salatin is leading the burgeoning local-food movement of farmers, food advocates, chefs and everyday folks who promise to change the way meat reaches the American table. Sponsored by Slow Food Huron Valley, the screening also includes the opportunity for a four-course dinner at Zingerman’s Roadhouse Restaurant featuring meats from Cornman Farms operated by James Beard chef Alex Young.  Following the film, there will be a panel discussion with local farmers, food advocates, environmentalists and Graham Meriwether, the director of ‘American Meat’ who grew up in Ann Arbor.
