Dumpster diving

by Dege Legg

Documentary exploring the phenomenon of eating out of dumpsters comes to AcA.

Dumpster diving is an art, a contact sport and a way of life for many people who detest waste and can't afford to buy food. Each year 854,000 humanoids go hungry. Big number. The documentary film Dive! examines the role of food in a society that throws away half of all that it produces by exploring the cultural phenomenon of dumpster diving the act of consuming food pulled from dumpsters and trash cans located behind restaurants, grocery stores and other food-related businesses. On Jan. 8, Acadiana Center for the Arts holds a special screening of Dive! with producer and director Jeremy Seifert as part of the South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. www.divethefilm.com
