''REMAINS'' : Documentary Screenings
Through the narratives of seven different people, each from a different area of the
production chain, the impression of food waste is engraved in the Greek capital.
Following the journey of a tomato from the field to the market counter, an activist, a
cook of a social cuisine, a chef, a supermarket chain and three representatives of
organizations operating in Athens at different stages of the journey of food, give their
own interpretations on the causes of millions of tons of food ending up in landfills, on
the association of the phenomenon with the crisis, on the particular characteristics of
Greek hyper-consumerism and on the solutions they propose.

Earth’s most recent geologic time period is considered to be human-influenced in a great extent, in terms of how much the human being is responsible for the alteration of the atmospheric, geologic and other earth system processes. In this context, we are looking forward to find new artistic, creative and experimental ways to communicate the environmental and deeply social issue of wasting food products and finite resources to a broad audience.
As a result, Re<>Direct is joining forces with the Greek Food Bank (FEBA member) for the creation of an experiential educational program for students in both public and private schools in Athens.
