Can sustainable farming feed America? American Meat is a solutions-oriented macroscopic documentary surveying the current state of the U.S. meat industry. Featuring Fred Kirschenmann, Joel Salatin, Steve Ells, Chuck Wirtz, Paul Willis, and tens of farmers across America, we take an even-handed look at animal husbandry. We explain how America arrived at our current industrial system, and show you the feedlots and confinement houses, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, we introduce the current revolution developing in animal husbandry, led by the charismatic and passionate Joel Salatin. We meet tens of farmers across the country who have changed their life to start grass-based farms, and we highlight every day tangible solutions that people can take, to change agriculture in America. We share the inspiring story of Chipotle, as CEO (and CU-Boulder alum) Steve Ells continues a mission to source his company's meat from different farms, with new groundbreaking protocols. We show the story of Stone Barns Center, explaining the importance of training and education for the new generation of farmers growing each day. The event is FREE and open to the public and is hosted by the CU Environmental Center.

Following the film will be a panel discussion featuring: Mel Coleman, Vice-President of Niman Ranch; Chef Ann Cooper, Renegade Lunch Lady and Director of Nutrition Services for Boulder Valley School District; and Graham Meriwether, the film's director and CU-Boulder alumnus.Discussion facilitated by MaryBeth Lynch of CU-Boulder.
