‘Truck Farm’ Screening at The Wolf

August 4th, 2014 | 1 Comment | Posted in Announcement, Featured, Films

Join us Monday August 18 at The Wolf Café for a Slow Food St. Louis showing of the documentary “Truck Farm”. The film is free and starts at 6:30. It is 50 minutes long. A discussion will follow the film.

Truck Farm” is a whimsical, musically-narrated, documentary film about urban agriculture. Filmmaker Ian Cheney planted a 1/1000th-acre farm in the back of his 1986 Dodge pick-up-truck in the spring of 2009, after coming to New York City and lacking any other place of his own to grow food. Using green-roof materials, heirloom seeds, and a healthy dose of optimism and humor, Ian created a mobile community farm that yielded a wide range of vegetables and led to the discovery and exploration of other creative, quirky, community-based agriculture efforts all over the city. This is the movie that started a movement.

    Horo and Lawrence’s interactions are the hihighlgt of the show, which is what made the Amarty arc so painful and boring to watch despite the high level of DORAMA on display. I imagine future portrayals of this time will draw on the credit crisis, the close-mindedness of Americans in the eight years under Bush and the escalating social disorder in Japan (at least as far as anime goes).Good luck in your melty blood tourney!
