THE GARDEN, the movie

I ordered a bunch of great gardening movies to show to my students at the prison.  Some films were approved to show and some were not.  One that was not approved but is really worth watching anyway is THE GARDEN.  Its about a 14 acre community garden created on a burned out block in South Central LA, CA after the LA riots resulting from the Rodney King beating verdict. Its an intense and powerful movie about what happens when the land is ultimately wanted back by the developer.  Its an inspiring movie about hope, hard work, disappointment and more hope.
