What’s Organic About Organic? (2010, 59 min) by director Shelley Rogers - explores how the “organic” label has evolved, how organic farmers view their work and the tension between maintaining high environmental standards and rapid market expansion.Through the stories of farmers who steward land from Harlem to the foothills of the Rockies, from upstate New York to Florida, the film offers audiences a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in creating a more sustainable food system.
There will be an interactive discussion about organic food after the film, led by Jeremiah Lowery, a program fellow at Common Good City Farm. Common Good City Farm is an organization whose mission is to grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs.
BloomScreen Indie Film Night – is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers and other experts. Our goal is to provide a unique experience that a local Cineplex cannot – an opportunity for discussion that allows a better understanding of issues affecting our communities and our world. If you are interested in helping out in any way, they are also looking for volunteers to help out, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in supporting BloomScreen.
