This month's movie is:
"The Garden" A Film by Scott Hamilton Kennedy

View the trailer:

"This Oscar nominee, award-winning, documentary chronicles the complex and emotional story of the destruction of Los Angeles' South Central Farm. Created from the ashes of the L.A. riots in 1992, the South Central Farm was the largest urban farm in the United States until its destruction in 2006. "The Garden" follows the farmers as they organize and launch an impassioned public battle to save the farm. The film documents the farmers' struggle against the city's backroom deals, and exposes the underlying issues of money, power, poverty and racial discord. The film explores the fault lines in American society, raising crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us."

You will be warned after 3 times and after 4 times you will be removed from the group. We understand-life happens, all we ask is you take a moment to change your RSVP or contact the organizer to let them know you can't attend.

    The film, which I hadn't previously been familiar with, was very moving and lead to an extremely interesting and informative discussion. The atmosphere was warm and positive as well.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
