Movies

  • The Garden - The Garden follows the plight of farmers from South Central Los Angeles that organized a 14 acre urban farm in response to the devastating LA riots in 1992. Most of the farmers are immigrants from countries in which they learned to fear for their lives if they were to speak out; the movie shows them organize, fight back, and demand answers when their land is threatened.
  • Food Inc. - An honest and frightening look inside America’s corporate controlled food industry.
