Ticketed guests will enjoy a pre-screening tasting of Southern-inspired foods including a recipe or two from Chef Edward Lee’s book “Smoke and Pickles” before the Kentucky premieres of Peter Byck’s One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts and Lee’s Fermented.
One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts
Director Peter Byck follows fourth-generation cattleman Will Harris’s evolution from industrial, commodity cowboy to sustainable, humane food producer. Harris’s work in Georgia shows we can adapt agricultural practices to raise and grow healthy food in harmony with nature. The land that once sustained only a cow/calf operation now is home to cattle, goats, pigs, turkeys, chickens and more and is a testament to the economic and environmental benefits of regenerative food production - boasting healthy soils, thriving farm animals, and a diverse eco-system while creating jobs that are breathing new life into a community forgotten after the industrialization of agriculture. Run time: 15 minutes
Look deeper, get a little dirty, and go ahead and find the beauty in rot. In the feature-length documentary Fermented, author and chef Edward Lee goes on a journey to better understand how the ancient process of fermentation is used in modern times by visiting artisans and chefs around the world. Directed by Jonathan Cianfrani, Lee is joined by an all-star cast of characters, including chefs Stuart Brioza and Dominique Crenn, bread mastermind Chad Robertson, craft brewing leader Nick Floyd, and fermentation guru Sandor Katz, to talk, share ideas, and cook with fermentation in mind.
