Husband and wife filmmakers, Matt Wechsler and Annie Speicher are working on a new documentary that critically examines our food system. Based in Chicago, they have already self-funded a good portion of the production work, and are seeking donations on Indigogo to complete the film project. Judging only from the trailer, and the fact that these are accomplished film professionals (Different is the New Normal, Grannies on Safari: The Colors of Cuba, and I Am For Peace), this looks like a worthwhile upcoming film to watch and support.
The good thing about contributing on the Indigogo platform, the funds go to the filmmakers regardless of whether they reach their target goal, or not. $60,000 may seem like a lot of money for those not familiar with the film industry, but it’s a small amount toward what’s generally needed to produce a feature length documentary.
