Written and directed by Mary Mazzio, and narrated by Academy Award nominee Edward Norton, “The Apple Pushers” is an inspiring and emotional film that follows five immigrant pushcart vendors who are rolling fresh fruits and vegetables into the so-called “food deserts” of New York City. (Bardo, one of the vendors featured in the film, is pictured above.)

The Apple PushersA food desert is a low-income neighborhood where finding a fresh apple or head of broccoli is extremely difficult; the vendors in “The Apple Pushers” are part of New York City’s Green Carts Initiative, a project designed to bring inexpensive, fresh produce to these areas.
