Movie Info

Jeremy Seifert's muckraking documentary rests on a sad and jarring fact: each year, Americans discard around 96 billion pounds of edible food, and send it directly to landfills - when hundreds of countries around the world exist below the poverty line. In Dive!, Seifert and co. go "dumpster diving" in the back-alley receptacles of L.A.-area supermarkets. During their journey, they manage to retrieve thousands of dollars worth of decent food, which raises vital questions about why such waste continues to occur, while numerous overseas populations starve. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

"Dive!" is a relevant documentary that puts the spotlight on the 96 billion pounds of food that America wastes annually...and what can be done about it. Trying their best to balance criticism of the retail industry with their positive actions so far, this documentary would inspire any open-hearted citizens of the world, regardless of their political or religious leanings. After all, roughly 20% of the population in this rich country still live their daily lives with food insecurity (in other words, one-fifth of Americans still go to bed not knowing how to get their food the next day).

I'm sympathetic to this guys cause (I guess, seems like a lot of work and time to disperse this food and the grocery stores seemed fine with helping this guy be that missing link, but he was more in to blaming them for not doing it themselves) but this was a pretty poorly done documentary. Seems like a high school project.
