A SHORT FILM SERIES FOR PBS
KNOW YOUR FOOD
EDITED AND ANIMATED BY PIER GIORGIO PROVENZANO
“KNOW YOUR FOOD” is a short film series for PBS which introduces viewers to the terms and principles that enable them to be more responsible, sustainably-minded consumers. For this series, we’ve worked closely with hundreds of thought leaders from every aspect of our food system to explain the real cost of cheap food, we’ve explored concepts like GMO and Organic, and we have discovered solutions to such challenges as food waste and seafood fraud.
By learning these key principles, consumers can do their part to fix our food system. Filmmakers Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton have turned their pioneering method of mixing hand-written text with photo collage into a stunning collection of short films that mix animation by Pier Giorgio Provenzano with live action interviews with food producers from across the country.
