THE STARFISH THROWERS
THE STARFISH THROWERS
The Durango High School Interact Club is holding a fundraiser for our trip to Mexico in February, where we will be working with an organization called Project Amigo. Each student is required to give a donation of $1200 that goes toward sustaining the mission of educating elementary through college aged students, up keep with libraries in rural communities, and growing dental and health programs for orphanages and students in nearby communities. The movie, The Starfish Throwers, showcases three stories of incredible acts of kindness. It was shown at the Durango Film Festival a few years ago, and has won many awards. There will be a taco bar and silent auction. $30/per person. Looking forward to seeing you there!

SYNOPSIS OF FILM
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, fighting against the caste system in India, quits his job to begin a life of cooking and hand-delivering fresh meals to hundreds of people in his hometown. Katie Stagliano’s planting of a single cabbage seedling when she was nine years old blossoms into Katie’s Krops, a non-profit with 73 gardens dedicated to ending hunger. Retired middle school teacher Mr. Law battles personal health issues as he hand delivers more than a thousand sandwiches nightly to the hungry in Minneapolis.

This documentary tells the 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.
