PASA Theatre Movie Screenings, Friday Night

Growing Cities

In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food – one vacant city lot, rooftop garden and backyard chicken coop at a time. Join them as they discover that good food isn’t the only crop these urban visionaries are harvesting. They’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too.

 

 

Symhony of the Soil

By understanding the elaborate relationships between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. Symphony of the Soil draws on ancient knowledge and cutting edge science to explore the possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet. The film also examines the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil’s key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time.

 

 

The Greenhorns

Monoculture; monopoly; cheap food; poor diets…the consequences of an agricultural system gone awry. Meet the young farmers who are re-orienting our food system. These dynamic entrepreneurs and stewards of place are starting businesses, partnering with others, inventing new social institutions, finding mentors, becoming apprentices, borrowing money, innovating and experimenting. They share a vision for a prosperous, satisfying, sustainable food system. It is ambitious and it will take work, but it won’t be boring.
