(Matt Wechsler & Annie Speicher/2016/52 min)

Hosted by It’s Our Future youth environmental leadership program and One Earth Film Festival Youth Advisory Council.

FILM DESCRIPTION: A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face—soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use—to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. “Sustainable” is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations. The narrative of the film focuses on Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his profitless wasteland and pioneers the sustainable food movement in Chicago.

Join us after the film for a moderated discussion with panelists in the local "good food," and food justice movements along with film director Matt Wechsler. Also learn about concrete action opportunities related to the film's topics. Facilitator: TBD.
