Social Cinema: Hungry to Learn (2019)

  • hungrytolearn

This film is a part of WUD Film's annual Social Cinema series in collaboration with the Havens Center for Social Justice at UW-Madison.

USA | 84 minutes | NR | Dir. Geeta Gandbhir

In a documentary film by Soledad O'Brien and Geeta Gandbhir, we meet the faces behind an American crisis -- college students so strapped to pay tuition that they don't have enough money to eat.

It's not about Ramen Noodles and care packages from home, it's a life of suffering from having no food at all, eating at food pantries or off the trays of fellow students. It's the humiliation of telling teachers and school officials that they need help, of applying for food stamps only to discover how hard it is for students to qualify, of going to class day after day distracted by hunger and rumbling stomachs.
