Creative Director of and HandPicked Nation contributor Andrea DiMauro is co-presenting a screening of the new documentary film American Meat in Rosendale, NY. (Watch the preview, above.)

Andrea, with Karl Family Farms, will host the screening on Tuesday March 5, 2013, at the Rosendale Theater at 7pm.

Pro-farmer documentary American Meat explores the industrial production of livestock and an alternative farming model through the eyes of the farmers that work them. Can this type of animal agriculture really work? Does it really matter?

Ask Kris Karl of Karl Family Farms your questions about sustainability after the film in a Q&A session. CSA sign-up opportunities and Karl Family Farms samples will be featured in the post-film discussion.

Sponsored by Karl Family Farms of Modena, NY, and FOOD TRUTH, an online resource to help you find and prepare real food.

Bring your kids, this is not a graphic exposé; it is a “Leave It Better Story!”
