Fighting Local Poverty & Feeding a Healthy Future
Urban Roots, directed by Detroit-native Mark MacInnis is a documentary that tells the powerful story of a small group of unique individuals involved in Detroit’s urban agricultural movement.
WHAT (is it?)
Urban Roots is a documentary film from Tree Media (11th Hour) following the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. Urban Roots is a timely, moving and inspiring work that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future. EarthTones founder and Detroit native Frank Fitzpatrick composed the score and created the film’s soundtrack as a way to give back to his birth place.
WHO (does it serve?)
Tree Media has teamed up with a number of organizations to encourage continued growth in the urban farming movement. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the film and soundtrack will help fund the Urban Roots/Field of Dreams program, which is helping to put farms in schools within the Los Angeles and Detroit metropolitan areas.
