Sponsored by the AIGA, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) is hosting a series of thought-provoking films related to sustainability issues and solutions. Two have been planned thus far; the first, Waste=Food (to be shown tonight, March 2), is a documentary that outlines the new philosophy promoting a recyclable destiny for all man-made products.
Put together by Rob van Hattum, this award-winning movie delves into how companies like Nike, Herman Miller, and Ford are experimenting with clean, sustainable productions methods and products that have adopted the idea that “waste=food.”
The next, Addicted to Plastic, will be shown on April 7 and outlines solutions to plastic pollution. The film also provides a history of plastic’s past 100 years, along with expert interviews regarding plastic recycling, toxicity, and biodegradability. A preview of the documentary can be seen below.
Both films will be shown at 7 p.m. in Auditorium 140 at MCAD’s main campus.
