Description

This documentary captures the ways developers, politicians and self-serving leaders have disrupted the lives of working-class families fighting to save the largest urban farm in America: a 14-acre oasis in Los Angeles that was created following the 1992 L.A. riots. At a time when economic insecurity is high, food prices rising and energy and environmental crises increase, this video tells a story and serves as a powerful symbol of the world we live in.
