Chipotle Food and Agriculture Film Series

Shown as part of Our Cities, Our Planet

Washington, D.C. Premiere Examining the role of urban farming in America, this documentary considers how much power this burgeoning movement has to revitalize our cities and change the way we eat. Searching for answers, the filmmakers take a road trip across America to meet the urban visionaries who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden and backyard chicken coop at a time. They discover that good food isn’t the only crop these men and women are harvesting–they’re producing stronger and more vibrant communities, too. Directed by Dan Susman. Produced by Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette.

Introduced by Professor Lisa Benton-Short, Academic Program Director for Sustainability, George Washington University. Discussion with filmmaker Dan Susman follows screening.
