Recently buzzed-about dietary exposé Food, Inc. offered a glimpse into the sausage factory of corporate agriculture.

Ana Sofia Joanes's Fresh, screening Thursday at Pilsen's charmingly homey EP Theater, presents an alternative.

Joanes "celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system," according to local promoter Matt Hoffman. Fresh features interviews with sustainable food advocates including The Omnivore's Dilemma author Michael Pollan, "grass farmer" Joel Salatin, and pro basketball player-turned-urban food activist Will Allen.

Fresh screens Thursday at 7:30 PM. Doors at 7. At the EP Theater, 1820 S. Halsted. $10 donation includes beer. RSVP here.
