From the Meaningful Movies Project: We are a group of concerned citizens in your neighborhood who are trying to make a difference in the defense of justice and pursuit of peace. We present social justice documentary films the last Friday night of every month, along with facilitated open community discussion on a wide range of topics, free and open to the public, with donations accepted to support Sustainable Renton. Our purpose is to gather, educate, inspire, connect, and commit to peace and justice
URBAN ROOTS is the next documentary from Tree Media. Produced by Leila Conners (The 11th Hour) and Mathew Schmid and directed by Mark MacInnis, the film follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. Urban Roots is a timely, moving and inspiring film that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.
