A Place At The Table

.

Directors Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush examine the issue of hunger in America through the lens of three people struggling with food insecurity: Barbie, a single Philadelphia mother who grew up in poverty and is trying to provide a better life for her two kids; Rosie, a Colorado fifth-grader who often has to depend on friends and neighbors to feed her and has trouble concentrating in school; and Tremonica, a Mississippi second-grader whose asthma and health issues are exacerbated by the largely empty calories her hardworking mother can afford.

Press

  • "The film explains with devastating simplicity why so many go hungry in a country with more than enough food to go round."
    London Evening Standard
  • "Filmmakers Kristi Jacobson and Lori Silverbush present these facts in A HIGHLY POLISHED PACKAGE, intercutting real-life stories of people struggling to find sufficient food with interviews with policy experts and celebrities who have made hunger their cause"
    The Salt Lake Tribune
  • "BEAUTIFULLY SHOT AND EDITED. THE CRAFT IS OF A VERY HIGH LEVEL"
    Toronto HotDocs Film Festival Must See
  • "The Sundance Film Festival is chock full of documentaries this year about the troubles besetting America... but A PLACE AT THE TABLE may rank AMONG THE MOST MOVING in that it tackles a seemingly straightforward, solvable problem: hunger in the United States."
    LA Times
  • "A POIGNANT FILM ABOUT HUNGER IN THE UNITED STATES"
    Deseret News
  • "A PLACE AT THE TABLE is an ENGAGING AND ENRAGING movie that will enlist supporters for its cause."
    Variety
  • "A PLACE AT THE TABLE doesn't offer any answers. Instead, it asks you to help find them by getting involved, which is the mark of an EXCELLENT DOCUMENTARY."

    Toronto Film Scene
  • "How can you be both hungry and obese? It's a paradox that more and more people in the United States are beginning to understand, and a question that's convincingly answered in Finding North, A PROVOCATIVE DOCUMENTARY about hunger within America's own borders."
