“Eating Alabama,” a documentary movie about eating locally, will be screened on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham at 7 p.m. March 20 at the Margaret Cameron Spain auditorium within the Spain Wallace building, 620 19th St. South.
Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Beck Grace will be at the screening of his movie, which follows one family’s quest to eat only locally grown food. Grace says the movie is a story about why food matters. It also examines themes of family, community and understanding the place one calls home.
Grace is a documentary filmmaker and native Alabamian. He directs the Documenting Justice program at the University of Alabama.
