Movies and Meaning Group "The Garden"

Here is a synopsis for the movie we will be seeing this month, Thursday, June 18: "The Garden" is an engaging and powerful look at the famous political and social battle over the largest community garden in the U.S. (located in south central Los Angeles). A follow-up to Kennedy's award-winning documentary, OT:Our Town, the film shows how the politics of power and greed (backroom deals, land developing, green politics, money) tragically intersect with working class families who rely on this communal garden for their livelihood. Equal parts The Wire and Harlan County, USA, "The Garden" exposes the fault lines in American society and raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us.
