Screening and Talk with Producer Bill Benenson and Compost Culture Founder Patrick Latting, Hosted by SMC Film Professor Sheila Laffey

Directed by Josh and Rebecca Tickell and narrated by Woody Harrelson, the film documents a revolutionary group of activists, scientists, farmers, and politicians who band together in a global movement of "Regenerative Agriculture" that could balance our climate, replenish our water supplies, and feed the world.

Producer Bill Benenson is an award-winning filmmaker of several eco documentaries, including Dirt! The Movie, which premiered at Sundance and was shown nationally on PBS for the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

Patrick Latting is a high school senior who started Compost Culture, which composts 1,700 lbs. of food waste per week in the Pasadena area. Sponsored by SMC Global Citizenship.
