Screening of GAINING GROUND, a new documentary film on food justice. GAINING GROUND tells personal stories of rural and urban farmers making extraordinary changes to feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. The documentary interweaves the lives of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large commodity grass seed and Asian wheat farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning to growing organic grains. The film personalizes issues of class, gender, race and environmental justice, rooting them within the narratives of compelling individuals. While the movie is sober about the obstacles to creating change, it points the way toward hope.
