Filmmaker Scott Hamilton (award winning director of OT: Our Town) brilliantly captures in a series of explosive and wrenching turns of events, the ways greedy developers, inept politicians and self-serving “community” leaders can run roughshod over the lives of working-class families fighting to save the largest urban farm in America: a 14-acre oasis in Los Angeles that was created in the wake of the 1992 LA riots.

Equal parts THE WIRE and HARLAN COUNTY USA, The Garden raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us. As the battle lines are drawn, the farmers’ cause becomes an international sensation that draws the attention of notable activists and politicians, including Dennis Kucinich, Daryl Hannah, Joan Baez and Willie Nelson. Witness how these gardeners, mostly immigrants from Latin America, find their voice, organize and fight back.
Also featuring a vintage Popeye cartoon: County Farm (1949)
