From the ashes of the LA riots arose a lush, 14-acre community garden, the largest of its kind in the United States. Now bulldozers threaten its future. If everyone told you to give up, would you?

Join us for a screening of the film and a subsequent discussion with director Scott Hamilton Kennedy. Indiewire says of The Garden: "[the film] 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."

Free and open to the public. Presented by the Film Studies Program with generous support from the Lectures and Concerts fund, the Environmental Studies program, the Latin American Studies program, the Center for the Common Good, the Africana Studies Program, and the English Department.
