The Starfish Throwers

Series: Collective Eye Documentary Series

The Hollywood Theatre and Collective Eye Films present THE STARFISH THROWERS, a story about unconditional giving in complicated circumstances. Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger.

Award-winning chef Narayanan Krishnan quits his job in India to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage blossoms into a nonprofit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Mr. Law, a retired school teacher, hand delivers a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis.

This documentary tells tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions.
