Mysteries of the Unseen World reveals phenomena that can’t be seen with the naked eye, taking audiences into earthly worlds secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.
Viewers experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception;
They “see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena of that occur in the flash of a microsecond;
They enter the microscopic world that was once reserved only for scientists, but that Mysteries of the Unseen World makes accessible to the rest of us;
They begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is TO see on this Earth.
High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements in science that now allow us to see a whole new universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed and now give us new “super powers” to see beyond what is in front of us.
Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Mysteries of the Unseen World will leave audiences in complete thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see, a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their own bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute-by-minute, and nanosecond-by-nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.
We spend half of our food dollars -- $660 billion per year -- in restaurants. (Fifty years ago we spent only 20% of our food budget eating out.) That kind of revenue empowered the National Restaurant Association (a.k.a. "the other NRA") to successfully lobby Congress in 1996 to keep the federal minimum wage for tipped workers at $2.13/hour. It's been that low ever since.
One-in-ten Americans currently work in food service. Viewers of “Where’s My Food?!” are introduced to nine extraordinary waiters and waitresses who represent a diverse mix of ages, backgrounds and incomes. The film highlights their often-hidden struggles with the NRA, poverty-level wages, discrimination, substance addictions, and serious health issues that impact coworkers and customers.
Frequent restaurant customers candidly admit how they sometimes “punish” servers by leaving very low tips. However the same customers show little awareness of how tipped employees actually earn their living. “Where’s My Food?!” takes viewers behind the scenes into the "back of the house," where chefs and cooks rule.
Academic and industry experts explain how tipping works from psychological and socioeconomic perspectives, how one executive chef runs his restaurants with an iron fist and a soft heart, and how consumers can drive positive change through awareness and political action.
