About Growing Cities
In their search for answers, filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette take a road trip and meet the men and women who are challenging the way this country grows and distributes its food, one vacant city lot, rooftop garden, and backyard chicken coop at a time.
Dan Susman's passion for city farming originated when he worked on an urban farm in Portland, OR. Ever since he has been dreaming of how to bring it back to his community and to people across the nation. One short documentary he made, Landmark, examined the social and political issues around developing a piece of land in his community.
Andrew Monbouquette earned his degree in Rhetoric & Media studies from Willamette University, where the motto was “Not unto ourselves are we born.” For him, making this film is about fulfilling his duty to fellow Americans by ensuring that everyone has access to fresh, healthy food. In addition to being a lifelong cinephile, Andrew has worked on several short films throughout college and high school.
Drinks will be provided by White Pike Whiskey and ACBC
