Price: Suggested donation $2
Ages: All/Use discretion

Join us in the Room E101 at AUNE for a showing of Urban Roots.

“When the story of the urban farmers in Detroit was brought to us, we knew that what they were doing – acting decisively and caring for themselves and their community – basically healing themselves and their neighborhoods through growing food, was that kind of local action that can make the world a better place so we committed to bringing their story to the world.” -Leila Conner, Producer

Detroit of the automotive days are over, the city has shrunk to half its size but out of the ashes rises a new city and new hope in the form of urban gardens. Urban Roots tells this tale of urban renewal through gardening and farming.

In the film Eating Alaska, what happens to a vegetarian who moves to Alaska and marries a commercial fisherman and deer hunter? Join her on a wry search for a sustainable, healthy and ethical meal. Women try to teach her to hunt, teens gather traditional foods, vegans give cooking lessons, she fishes for wild salmon, scrutinizes food labels with kids and finds toxic chemicals getting into wild foods. With humor and compassion, the documentary Eating Alaska shows natives and non-natives trying to balance buying industrial processed foods with growing their own and living off the land in the 21st century. Made by a former urban vegetarian now living on an island in Alaska, it is a journey into regional food traditions, our connection to where we live and what we put into our mouths.
