Hunger for Knowledge

Currently, i'm working on a project with a group of local chefs, sustainable fisheries, and organic farmers in order to start a local organization called The Culinary Liberation Front.  The main goal of our non-profit is to raise the awareness of chefs & restaurant patrons in Orange County. 

 More to come in The Liberation Front (i've been pretty busy with this side project), but I really wanted to share a documentary that really hits home… 

The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009.
In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food.
Filmed over two years, The End of the Line follows the investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.
Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, 
The End of the Line is a wake-up call to the world.
