'Just Eat It' and other titles from Bullfrog Films now available on NJVID

NJVID members now have access to license new titles from Bullfrog Films that were added this week. See how filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food wastage from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge in Just Eat It. Details on this and other titles provided below. All titles can now be licensed by any NJVID member for streaming access from Bullfrog Films.

  • Just Eat It - We all love food -  As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly
    50% of it in the trash. Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people are food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant's addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the "thrill of the find" has unexpected consequences. This film is available in two versions - A 50 minute classroom version as well as the 73-minute theatrical version.
  • What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy - A bracingly rigorous examination of inherited guilt and pain, this film explores the relationship between two men, each of whom are the children of very high-ranking Nazi officials but possess starkly contrasting attitudes toward their fathers.The film was written and is hosted by eminent human rights lawyer Philippe Sands, who became fascinated by its central figures, Niklas Frank and Horst von W├Ąchter, while researching the Nuremberg trials.
  • The Secret Life of Your Clothes - In this revealing film, charismatic paralympian Ade Adepitan tells the fascinating story of the afterlife of our clothes. He follows the trail to Ghana, the biggest importer of our castoffs where thousands of tons of our old clothes arrive every week. Ade meets the people who make a living from our old clothes, from wholesalers and markets traders to the importers raking in more than the average yearly wage in a single day!
