Narrated by Edward Norton, APPLE PUSHERS profiles five New York City immigrant push-cart vendors with a common goal: to find success in America. As part of the “green cart initiative” started by the City Council, these vendors achieve this dream by selling fruits and vegetables in the “food deserts” of the Big Apple. These vendors are not only carving out an economic niche for themselves but are counteracting the high rates of obesity and diabetes in the City’s low-income communities. APPLE PUSHERS is an uplifting story, which shows how passionate small business owners can be part of the solution to one of the nation’s biggest problems.
Filmmaker(s) expected to be in attendance for post-screening Q&A.
