COMING UP on Media Edge:
 

Episode 481
(initially on cable access TV:
  July 26 - August 1, 2014)

 
Segment 1: "World Peace is a Local Issue"
(16 minutes)

What happens when local citizens take on an international issue? OSCAR-nominated, EMMY-winning filmmaker, Dorothy Fadiman, documented the hard work and eventual triumph, of Palo Alto, California residents who move their City Council to change an entrenched position on a critical issue and
pass a Nuclear Freeze Resolution. Narrated by Peter Coyote, this half hour documentary spans more than 30 years as we see Senator Edward Markey introduce the freeze resolution in 1982, and again today, appealing to Congress to reduce nuclear arms. By showing what a determined group of people can accomplish, WORLD PEACE highlights the fact that international concerns are also local issues.

 

Segment 2: "The Story of Bottled Water"
(8 minutes)

The story of manufactured demand -- how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. This film explores the bottled water industry's attacks on tap water
and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces.


Segment 3: "Feeding Frenzy"
(64 minutes)

Over the past three decades, obesity rates in the U.S. have more than doubled for children and tripled for adolescents -- and a startling 70% of adults are now obese or overweight. The result has been a widening epidemic of obesity-related health problems, including coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. While discussions about this spiraling health crisis have tended to focus on the need for more exercise and individual responsibility, Feeding Frenzy trains its focus squarely on the responsibility of the processed food industry and the outmoded government policies it benefits from. It lays bare how taxpayer subsidies designed to feed hungry Americans during the Great Depression have enabled the food industry to flood the market with a rising tide of cheap, addictive, high calorie food products, and offers an engrossing look at the tactics of the multibillion-dollar marketing machine charged with making sure that every one of those surplus calories is consumed
.
 

Segment 4: "Peak Moment"
(26 minutes)

Peak Moment attended a delicious potluck dinner from foods produced around Victoria, Vancouver Island, B.C.  Small-scale food producers brought fresh-caught salmon, pastured pork and lamb, eggs, winter squashes,
artichoke puree, and fermented vegetables. We talked about producing food in their region: using animals to clear brush, water storage, and creating edible food landscapes on residential parcels. Sadly, land is financially out of reach for many would-be small farmers.
