Slow Session: Old Truck. New Farm! – Film Screening
-Monday, June 13
-7pm – 9pm
-Swoop House – 3012 Gonzales St. , 78762 [Austin]
Enjoy the summer evening outside with local farm finger foods, cold drinks, and what the Huffington Post is calling “the coolest urban agriculture project around.” Old Truck. New Farm! a new documentary from the filmmakers behind the award-winning King Corn, tells the story of a new generation of American farmers. Using green roof technology and heirloom seeds, filmmaker Ian Cheney plants a vegetable garden on the only piece of land he’s got: his grandad’s old pickup. Blending serious exposition with serious silliness, Truck Farm entreats viewers to ponder the future of urban farming, and to consider whether sustainability needs a dose of whimsy to be truly sustainable.
Film will begin when the sun goes down and the breeze kicks in, so please bring your own seating, be it a blanket, lawn chair or friend. Space is limited so please RSVP to anneh AT slowfoodaustin.org
