6:30pm Doors open
7:00pm Film screening
7:45pm Q&A

Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh produce projects in San Diego’s diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with folks that are taking advantage of the city’s reformed
urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low ­income communities, eating healthier with produce they’ve grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect
for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.

Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with underserved communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative.
As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.

encuentro 5 (e5) is a collaborative project and space for progressive movement building in the heart of Boston. It is organized by Massachusetts Global Action (MGA) and TecsChange: Technology for Social Change.
