Three short films explore sustainable shrimp farming, the mobile world of taco trucks, and nose to tail cooking – with coconuts.

Coconut Nose to Tail
(Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine, 2013, 4 minutes) No part of the coconut goes to waste in this entertaining short.

Lonche
(Claire Weissbluth, 2013, 20 minutes) Travel California’s backroads with two very different taco trucks: one serving office workers in Silicon Valley, the other serving strawberry and raspberry pickers in the Pajaro Valley.

Raising Shrimp
(Sarah Curry, Fish Navy Films, 2014, 60 minutes) Shrimp is our most popular seafood item (we consume a billion pounds a year). But 90% of our shrimp is imported, and most of that is farmed, not wild caught. Filmmaker Ted Caplow and scientist Andy Danylchuk search for a seafood we can all believe in. Ultimately, they find hope in a most unlikely place, as their journey makes a sharp turn into modern agricultural science.

Served with: Shrimp cocktail from Natural Shrimp.
