While 46.5 million people in America rely on food banks, we throw away a ton of food: approximately $165 billion worth each year.

Exploring this trend of waste and excess is Pas De Restes (2015), an award-winning short film about a privileged family that finds out what happens when you bite off more than you can chew — especially when it has to come back out.

Written, directed and starring Rectify‘s brilliant Johnny Ray Gill, the film won Best Narrative Short at the Portland Film Festival and the Green Lens Environmental Film Festival. Watch below.
