What began as a Vermont International Film Foundation series focused on works from the home countries of some of the state’s New American communities is now an annual three-day film festival. The 2017 Global Roots Film Festival presents nearly a dozen national and international pictures centered on the universal themes of music and food. From the rich musical cultures portrayed in the documentaries Mali Blues and I Am the Blues (pictured) to the culinary customs in the 1987 French drama Babette’s Feast, this collection of films gives viewers an up-close look at how different populations nourish their bodies and souls. Filmmaker appearances, receptions and a panel discussion round out this celluloid celebration of diversity.
