Movie Nights At Crossroads Farm 

Truck Farm

We’re excited to announce 2 more documentary showings at Crossroads!

These documentaries cover topics that we find in alignment with the nature of our mission, and we’d love for you to watch and learn with us. 

Documentary Series Schedule:

August 29, 2019          Truck Farm 

September 12, 2019    Queen of the Sun

Truck Farm Synopsis 

(Click here for trailer)

‘Truck Farm’ is a whimsical, musically-narrated, documentary film about urban agriculture. Filmmaker Ian Cheney planted a 1/1000th-acre farm in the back of his 1986 Dodge pick-up-truck in the spring of 2009, after coming to New York City and lacking any other place of his own to grow food. Using green-roof materials, heirloom seeds, and a healthy dose of optimism and humor, Ian created a mobile community farm that yielded a wide range of vegetables and led to the discovery and exploration of other creative, quirky, community-based agriculture efforts all over the city.

Movie Nights At Crossroads Farm

We’re excited to announce 3 documentary showings at Crossroads!

These documentaries cover topics that we find in alignment with the nature of our mission, and we’d love for you to watch and learn with us. 

Documentary Series Schedule:

August 8, 2019            Modified (Click here for FB event)

August 29, 2019          Truck Farm 

September 12, 2019    Queen of the Sun

 

Modified Synopsis 
(Click here for trailer)

Aube Giroux (the filmmaker) and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. Their intimate mother-daughter quest for answers, fuelled by a shared love of food, reveals the extent to which the agribusiness industry controls our food policies, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system. A visual celebration of family legacy and the love of food, cooking, and gardening.
