Fri., Nov. 18, from 7 – 9 p.m., get a glimpse into the future of our nation's farmers at the very first screening of The Last Crop in the Pittsburgh region. This intimate documentary is a window into the lives of small family farmers Jeff and Annie Main of California's Central Valley, chronicling their ten-year pursuit to ensure their farm's survival at the onset of a new generation. The film echoes the stories of family farmers all across the U.S. who have a deep-rooted passion for their land and its bounty, and yet, must make difficult decisions as they age and their children grow. Witness one farm family's determination as they – against all odds – strive to preserve their land for future generations. Post-film discussion will be led by Chuck Schultz, the film's director, whose work provides a unique commentary on the socio-economic issues facing America today.

Screenings for the Environmental Film Series take place on the third Friday of every month from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Botany Hall Auditorium at Phipps. Attendance to these screenings is free with regular admission, but tickets are required; please pick up your free tickets in the Welcome Center starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the film.
