New Hampshire native <strong>Alex Mallis</strong> is head of <a href="http://1.analectfilms.com/" target="_blank">Analect Films</a> – and the director of the short documentary <em><a href="http://moniff.org/film/spoils-extraordinary-harvest" target="_blank">Spoils: Extraordinary Harvest</a></em>. The film follows a diverse group of so-called ‘dumpster-divers’ on their late night journey to a New York City Trader Joes. You can catch <em>Spoils</em> this Saturday at 11 am at the Colonial Theater as part of the <a href="http://moniff.org/" target="_blank">Monadnock Film Festival</a> - and Alex joins us to explain the philosophy and logistics behind reclaiming discarded food from the dumpster.</p><p> Thu, 04 Apr 2013 15:32:49 +0000 Rebecca Lavoie 24942 at http://nhpr.org Eating Trader Joes' Trash: A Documentary About Dumpster Diving Comments from Mt.
