Food Justice: A Growing Movement
Food Justice: A Growing Movement (audio only)

A Growing Movement was conceptualized in a coffee shop in Prescott, AZ. The project was formally Martina’s senior project at Prescott College, but quickly became a mutual undertaking when Zora quit her job to head to California for the filming. Neither of them had studied or worked in film, much less attempted to document an issue which called for articulate exposure. The filmmakers felt that the issues of urban food security in relationship to systemic oppression, environmental racism, health issues and the failure of our conventional food system needed to reach the public, with primary distribution within the communities that bear the consequences of social inequity. It was also their intention as activists to portray the world which they are striving to create, and so Zora and Martina focused upon several of many Bay Area grassroots projects that they consider part of the food justice movement.
