:THE NEED TO GROW

Screening Schedule:

:THE NEED TO GROW

USA, 2018, 96 min

With only 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth, "The Need To Grow" offers an intimate look into the hearts of activists and innovators in the food movement: an 8-year-old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization; a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource efficient agriculture; and an accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.
