Food Studies presents Out Here film screening March 28

Out Here screening posterTogether with a number of Syracuse University programs, Falk College’s Food Studies program presents a screening of Out Here, a documentary film about the hearts and hard work of queer farmers in the U.S., followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Jonah Mossberg, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 in Heroy Auditorium from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The screening is free and open to the public.

Created by the Queer Farmer Film Project, the full-length documentary film illuminates the lives of queer farmers in the U.S. “Food Studies is excited to host Jonah Mossberg and his film Out Here,” says Elissa Johnson, Food Studies internship coordinator. “Although Out Here focuses on gender and sexual identity, this project ultimately highlights the intersectional identities of farmers in the U.S., and examines the important connections between food, identity, and community.”

“As a rapidly emerging field of study, Falk College’s Food Studies program explores food and its vital influence on culture, public health, the environment, and beyond,” says Diane Lyden Murphy, dean of Falk College. “Together with a number of Syracuse University groups, Falk College Food Studies is pleased to present a screening of Out Here, which brings awareness to and understanding of the lives of the United States’ queer farmers.”

This documentary film screening is presented by Falk College’s Food Studies program; Maxwell School’s Department of Sociology and Department of Anthropology; the College of Arts & Sciences’ Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and the Lesbian Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies program; the Syracuse University Humanities Center; and Brain Feeders, a student organization in Falk College’s Food Studies program.
