(Taste the Waste) Director: Valentin Thurn, D, 2011, French-English-German version / Czech and English subtitles, 88 min

Amazing but true: on the way from the farm to the dining-room table, more than half the food lands on the dump. Most of it before it ever reaches consumers. We’re not talking about chicken bones and potato peels here. The topic at hand is perfectly edible food, some still in the original packaging, and frequently enough not even the ‘best before’ date has expired. Just in the EU this happens to 90 million tons of food each year, which is twice the amount needed to feed all the hungry people in the world. How is it possible that so much food goes to waste?

Director Valentin Thurn seeks explanations from supermarket sales staff and managers, from bakers, wholesale market inspectors, welfare recipients, farmers and EU ministers and bureaucrats. He does not try to moralize, but rather understand the mass wasting of food and introduce some inspiring ideas how to stop the unnecessary wasting.
