      My previous comment was trying to be funny. But seriously this is a great film and seems an important extension of what we see as edible food and our relationship with food. Please support it.

      This is a great film. I backed it. If you don't back it, I will hunt you down.

      The trailer looks great, and I'm very interested to see it, but my concern is whether it trivializes the situation of those who cannot eat if they don't dumpster dive, and therefore the very serious homelessness problem not just in America, but elsewhere.

      This trailer looks great. This community of people are fun to learn about, and the whole documentary subject is a super upbeat survival course. Good luck Alex.

      1. I was dubious.
      2. Clearly, I shouldn't have been.
      3. Terrific stuff...I found myself smiling all the way.
