UNM School of Law Presents Jeremy Seifert's "Dive"

UNM School of Law, Envi­ron­men­tal Law Soci­ety & the Stu­dent Bar Asso­ci­a­tion Present ‘DIVE’ a film by Jeremy Seifert

Thurs­day, March 24 at 7 p.m. 
UNM School of Law, 1117 Stan­ford NE, room 2401.

Inspired by a curios­ity about our country’s habit of send­ing food to land­fills, the award-winning doc­u­men­tary fol­lows 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 good, edi­ble food – result­ing in an inspir­ing doc­u­men­tary that is equal parts enter­tain­ment, guer­rilla jour­nal­ism and call to action.

A dis­cus­sion of the legal, moral and prac­ti­cal issues raised by the film fol­lows the screening.

For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact John Ver­heul or call (505) 231‑1665.
