PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale is inviting residents to attend a special screening
of the documentary “Dive!” on Wednesday, March 16.
Doors open at 2 p.m., and the movie will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the Chimbole Cultural
Center, located at 38250 Sierra Highway in Palmdale.
Seating is limited. Interested persons should RSVP by calling 661-267-5300 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inspired by a curiosity about our country’s habit of sending food straight to landfills, the documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles’ supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars’ worth of edible food — resulting in a documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism and call to action.
Following the special screening will be a panel discussion on local solutions to the problem and a short video featuring culinary students from the University of Antelope Valley who prepared meals for local families from donated food.
