A New York City student, frustrated with the food at his grammar school, used his camera to film a short movie.

It’s called, “Yuck: A 4th grader’s short documentary about school lunch.”

11-year-old Zach Maxwell said he got the idea after he complained to his parents about the food at school.

It was meant to be an undercover video of cafeteria food at Manhattan’s P.S. 130. Now it’s going to be screened at the Manhattan Film Festival on Friday.
