the garden

The Garden
is a documentary about the battle over the South Central Farm in Los Angeles. Created after the riots in 1992, South Central Farm was the largest community garden in the United States until the city sold it to developers in a closed door meeting, the developers evicted the gardeners and bulldozed it.  (as far as I know, the 14 acre lot is still empty). 

Part of me really wants to see this Oscar nominated film because it is supposed to be wonderful, but part of me really, really doesn't because it'll completely break my heart.  It opens friday in LA, everywhere else sometime after.
