In Eating Alabama, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, Eating Alabama is a story about why food matters. The film won Best Documentary at the James Beard Foundation annual awards in 2014 and screened on PBS.
Written and Directed by Andrew Beck Grace. Produced by Andrew Beck Grace and Bartley Powers.
