Film documents a responsible young consumer approach to hunting, by Gary Lewis, BendBulletin, Oct 5, 2016

``In this film, a rural kid and a suburbanite could sit side by side and understand each other a little better.``

``No matter how you feel about hunting or even about eating meat, you cannot help but rejoice``

Perhaps this year's most surprising entry: the world premiere of Vanessa LeMaire's ``An Acquired Taste.`` ``It's about a group of teens concerned with factory farming, coming from a place of mindfulness, who want to connect with their food and learn to hunt,`` says Caplan. ``It's pro-hunting and pro-gun, definitely an unexpected discovery for a green festival.`` She forsees a heated discussion following the screening.

Ce film qui traite donc d'un sujet assez atypique, celui d'un retour à la chasse parmi les adolescents urbains contre l'industrie fermière, ne manquera pas soulever de nombreuses questions auxquelles Vanessa, présente à la projection, pourra répondre.
