As part of the Village Building Convergence, Jean's Farm will host a Full Moon Movie Showing. The film, The Final Straw, will run for 72 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with the film's co-producer, Kaori Tsuji (, from Kobe, Japan.

From the majestic landscapes and moving original soundtrack, to the deeply insightful interviews with world leaders in the natural farming movement, Final Straw offers viewers a stunning meditative story of age-old ideas about food, ecological connectedness, and personal happiness.

The warm cast of natural farmers, chefs, and teachers together illuminate a brilliant yet maddeningly simple path to sustainability and well being for people and the environment, centered around the philosophies of the late Masanobu Fukuoka and his seminal book, One Straw Revolution (
