Papadopoulos’ Short Film, Live To Share, Honors Essential Food System Heroes

SACRAMENTO, CA – Greek-American Nick Papadopoulos, co-founder and CEO of CropMobster, a food and supply sharing service, produced a short film with the help of well-known actor and activist Peter Coyote. The film, titled Live to Share, highlights essential food system workers and calls on the community to support these everyday heroes. 

As noted on the CropMobster website, the film is a “call to action” and the filmmakers request that “as you experience Live to Share, if this brings to mind an individual, business, or organization that makes a difference in your life or community please share with them and say this is #dedicatedtoyou.”

According to the CropMobster website, the poem that serves as the narration of the film was co-authored by Papadopoulos and Coyote, who delivers the important message in his distinctive voice. Post production and score for the film was by Monkey Rock Media, and the Spanish translation by Ricardo Madrazo. Photo contributions were from Jess Flood, Karen Preuss, Gary Cedar, Geoffrey Von Zastrow, Bobby Nicholson, and others. The filmmakers thanked the leading partner organizations who made the film possible including University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Cooperative Extension, University of California Merced, and The Vine.

“With all original poetry, music and footage, #LivetoShare is a thank you, an homage to those who make it possible to feed our communities every single day,” the filmmakers noted on YouTube, adding that “COVID-19 has shown us the power of our local communities, the resiliency of our local food systems, and put into focus the heroes who make it possible for food to end up on our plates.

“Live to Share is a call to remember, a call to reflect, and a declaration to the people who have reclaimed our food system.

“Please share this video with those you honor. #LivetoShare#MyFoodSystemsHeroes#Cropmobster#WhoDoYouHonor#Covid19#HonorResiliency."

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
