WASTED: The Story of Food Waste
An informative and entertaining documentary produced by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, "Wasted!" takes you around the world, showing the 1.3 billion tons of food that gets thrown out each year and the people fighting hardest to prevent it.
"Wasted! is sure to be mind-expanding for anyone who's never contemplated what happens when excess food is scraped off one's plate. But the film's real novelty lies in the demonstration of actual solutions that have already been put into practice." Serena Donadoni Village Voice "As with many recent environmental documentaries, the filmmakers' call to action is simple and upbeat: This isn't so hard, people, we can do it if we try!"
G. Allen Johnson San Francisco Chronicle "Inverts the usual eco-doc formula, spending only enough time on problems to establish their importance, then traveling around the world to prove how satisfying the solutions can be."
