This wartime story of man and the food necessary for his survival is told by two men - a commentator and an interjector. The many-faceted problem of ensuring adequate production of essential foods, and a fair and even distribution of foods throughout the world, is challengingly presented.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
