Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 20 — Watch IMA's screening of the Eco-Documentary, "Our Daily Bread"

With dispassionate objectivity, Austrian documentary filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter lifts the veil on modern industrial food production. Avoiding conventional narrative techniques, Geyrhalter lets the images speak for themselves. The result is a coldly beautiful and often disturbing visual essay illustrating what goes on in slaughterhouses, manufacturing plants and large dusty fields to process and package our food.

When: Friday March 20, 7:00 PM
Where: Indianapolis Museum of Art, Tobias Theater

Purchase tickets at www.imamuseum.org, by calling 317-955-2339 or at the door. Adults $9 / Members $5 / Students with ID $7/ Youth 12 & under $5

IMA's Eco-Documentary film series is a trio of recent documentaries featuring artistic treatments of environmental issues and adventures in green architecture. Facilitated discussions after each film.

Our Daily Bread (2005, dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter, 92 mins, NR)
The film looks, without commenting, into the realms where food is produced: surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds. In a series of visually stunning, continuously tracking, wide-screen images that seem right out of a science-fiction movie, Our Daily Bread offers a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn’t always easy to digest. A pure, meticulous film experience that invites viewers to form their own ideas about food in today’s world. The New York Times calls the film “devastating…a must-see.” Viewer discretion advised.

Co-presented by the Hoosier Environmental Council.
