Documentary Films: Can they Change the World?

Friday, May 12
11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Think of SuperSize Me, An Inconvenient Truth and all the way back to Titicut Follies. Top filmmakers and producers discuss the impact documentaries have on music, food & beverage, and most importantly, social consciousness. How have they motivated action after the lights go down and what is their role in these challenging times?
