TORONTO, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - THE GARDEN has been hailed by critics as the
most astute and powerful political film of the year. Filmmaker Scott Hamilton
Kennedy brilliantly captures, in a series of explosive and wrenching events,
the ways greedy developers, inept politicians and self-serving "community"
leaders can wreak havoc over the lives of working class families fighting to
save a 14-acre urban farm that has become their very source of survival. THE
GARDEN 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.
As battle lines are drawn between this group of low-income families
struggling to protect their land against a backdrop of grey and hardened
skyscrapers, their cause becomes an international sensation that draws the
attention of numerous notable activists and politicians, including Dennis
Kucinich, Danny Glover and Willie Nelson.
Nominated for a 2009 Academy Award(R) for Best Documentary Feature and
theatrically released in the U.S. by Oscilloscope Laboratories, this powerful
call-to-action film arrives on DVD Tuesday, September 1st, 2009.
