Occupy the Farm Film says
The Urban Farmers Collaborative at Sustainability Park and Produce Denver is proud to present Occupy the Farm, a film by Todd Darling, tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a publicly owned research farm and plant it with two acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development.

The film captures an intense conflict over one piece of land. Compelling characters on both sides of the battle create a remarkable narrative in which community members employ an ingenious strategy to confront a powerful institution in the effort to preserve public land for urban farming.

From preparing the soil to police raids, from lawsuits to overflowing harvests, Occupy the Farm reveals a determined community responding with a direct action to address a major social need: healthy food and access to public land.

Join us on April 7th at the Sie Film Center Center at 7:15 Pm.
There will be speakers from our community and lots of smiling faces. Tickets will sell out so get your advanced tickets here: http://www.denverfilm.org/filmcenter/detail.aspx?id=27321

Critics Say:

“Riveting from the start”, says the Village Voice’s film critic Ernest Handy about OCCUPY THE FARM. “It illustrates the staggering extent to which corporate interests dictate policy and shape scientific research.”

“Sweeps up the viewer in a fast-paced, character-driven narrative,” says Sarah Burke in her film review of OCCUPY THE FARM in East Bay Express.
“Empowering food for thought,” says Los Angeles Times film critic Michael Rechtsaffen.
