Summary 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.. Official Selection at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Nominated for Best Director and Best Feature at the Midwest Independent Film Festival. Winner of the Human Spirit Award at the Nashville Film Festival.. "The doc stands above typical do-good fare by artfully drawing the viewer into the motivations and experiences of each of the three [subjects]." - Kristin Tillotson, The Minneapolis Star Tribune. "One of the great attributes of THE STARFISH THROWERS is that the fly-on-the-wall style of filmmaking allows for Krishnan and the rest to tell their own stories with all the passion, hurt, and hope that lives deep inside them." - Indra Arriaga, The Anchorage Press
