Synopsis: 

In the not-too-distant past, all food was local.  Hyper-local, in fact: if you didn’t grow it or find it yourself, you didn’t eat it.  Today our food is hyper-global: wherever you are, you can get your food from any corner of the world.  What might a return to hyper-localism look like today, now that over half the world’s population lives in cities?  In FOOD CITY, the filmmakers, Matt and Lars endeavor to find out by challenging themselves to serve a four-course meal for eight people - using only ingredients grown, caught, or foraged from within the five boroughs of New York City.
