Hurry! You have until April 30th to watch The Apple Pushers; the documentary that kicked off our Do Something Reel™ Film Festival opens in a new tab. The Apple Pushers opens in a new tab tells the stories of five immigrant streetcart vendors who each have one dream: to find success in America. To realize that dream, each has chosen to be a part of a unique urban experiment to roll fresh fruits and vegetables into New York City's food deserts.
It’s narrated by Academy Award nominee Edward Norton.
Here’s what he had to say about being involved with the film and Do Something Reel.
