*Intro by and discussion with Jonathan Wilson of Active Citizen Project

Directed by Scott Hamilton Kennedy

"Scott Hamilton Kennedy records the backroom politics and shady courtroom machinations that ensue when a thriving community garden operated by Mexican-American immigrants in LA is suddenly and inexplicably condemned to make way for warehouse development. The farmers' refusal to relinquish the land results in a David vs. Goliath battle that exposes a mess of bureaucratic corruption extending all the way to City Hall."
