â€œMontana Fareâ€ examines contemporary food culture in rural Montana through the eyes of two women, farmer/rancher Jenny Sabo and Native American tribal elder Minerva Allen, who try to feed their families while living 50 miles from the nearest grocery store. This short film explores the complexity of our relationship to food, while covering a number of relevant food issues, including nutrition, food access and security, changing taste preferences and homogenization, disassociation and distance from food, and public health. Along with inspiring local scenery and down-to-earth, poignant discussions with both women, â€œMontana Fareâ€ captures how two people with distinct pasts and different futures decide what food to put on the table.
