Free screening: 'What's on Your Plate?' at the Hammer Museum, April 1

Hammer The Hammer Museum will host a free screening next week of "What's on Your Plate?" -- a documentary about kids and food politics by filmmaker Catherine Gund. The film follows two 11-year-olds who explore New York's food sources, talking to activists, farmers, store owners and their families in an effort to understand what's on their plates. The middle-schoolers delve into how their food is cultivated, how many miles it travels from harvest to plate, how it's prepared, who prepares it, and what is done with the packaging and leftovers. The screening will take place Thursday, April 1, at 7 p.m. A Q&A panel will follow, featuring director Gund, star Sadie Hope-Gund, and actors-activists Ed Begley Jr. and Esai Morales. 

10899 Wilshire Blvd., (310) 443-7000, www.hammer.ucla.edu.
