In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they
set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as
they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that
nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated
their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the
South and sustainability, “Eating Alabama” is a story about why food matters.

The Garden:

The Garden has the pulse of verité with the narrative pull of fiction, telling
the story of the country’s largest urban farm, backroom deals, land developers,
green politics, money, poverty, power, and racial discord. The film explores and
exposes the fault lines in American society and raises crucial and challenging
questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable
among us.

A Sea Change:

1870 Bowens Island Rd.
James Island

A Sea Change follows the journey of Sven Huseby on his quest to discover what’s
happening to the world’s oceans. After reading Elizabeth Kolbert’s “The Darkening
Sea,” Sven becomes obsessed with the rising acidity of the oceans and what this
“sea change” bodes for mankind. His quest takes him all over the world as he
uncovers a worldwide crisis that most people are unaware of. Speaking with
scientists and artists, Sven discovers that excess carbon dioxide is dissolving in
our oceans, changing sea water chemistry. The more acidic water makes it difficult
for tiny creatures to form their shells. The effects could work their way up to
the fish 1 billion people depend upon for their source of protein.
