"The Garden" doucumentary playing at the Alamo Drafthouse

The South Lamar Alamo is doing three screenings of the superb documentary, "The Garden." It's about the South Central Farmers in LA, and their struggle to save their community garden - the largest community garden in the U.S. I saw it tonight, and I can't express how glad I am that I saw it. Not only is it a compelling story with an emotional telling, it can teach us a lot about the culture and importance of community gardening. Also, it's not preachy. Check it out - the film won't be on DVD for a while.

The director is also at the showing, and does a Q & A session afterwards. It's playing Monday and Tuesday at 7 pm.
