The Bozeman Doc Series presents The Grab

On Thursday, March 2nd, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, the Bozeman Doc Series presents the critically-acclaimed new film from award-winning director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, The Grab.

Quietly and seemingly out of sight, governments, private investors and mercenaries are working to seize food and water resources at the expense of entire populations. These groups are establishing themselves as the new OPEC, where the future world powers will be those who control not oil, but food. And it’s all beginning to bubble to the surface in real time. Global food prices have hit an all-time high, threatening chaos and violence. Meanwhile, Russia is using food as a weapon against the Ukrainians, and as a geopolitical tool to wield global power. The Grab is a global thriller combining hard-hitting journalism from The Center for Investigative Reporting with the compelling character-driven storytelling of director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, taking you around the globe to reveal one of the world’s biggest and least known threats.

The Grab world-premiered last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival to widespread critical acclaim

“A documentary paced like a sleek, complex international thriller, where nothing less than the future of the world is at stake.” The Los Angeles Times

“The Grab [is] in the same general sphere as something like All the President’s Men or Spotlight, as simultaneous examinations of big, landscape-shifting stories and the necessary journey to cast light into the darkness....Gripping and timely.” The Hollywood Reporter

“This is the “holy s$&t” documentary of the year”

Doors open at 6:30pm.
