Gimme Some Truth Presents: The Garden

The Garden by Scott Hamilton Kennedy
Friday October 22 At 7:30 PM
Cinematheque, 100 Arthur Street
Tickets $10
The Academy-Award nominated documentary The Garden tells the story of an  urban garden in South Central Los Angeles which began as a form of healing after the LA race riots of 1992 and the farmers' struggle to hold onto the land as city and other interest groups try to take it away from them. At 14 acres andover 300 families it was the largest community garden in the country.  

The Garden chronicles their battle, and in doing so, brings to light issues of environmental sustainability, social justice and race relations. Director Scott Hamilton Kennedy from Los Angeles will attend this screening and the Q and A to follow.
