PRDREAM’S SUMMER FILMS SCHEDULE IN THE 103rd STREET COMMUNITY GARDEN (103rd Street and Park Avenue)

Taking Root: Documentary. 2008. English, no subtitles.
IT’S THE ENVIRONMENT…
In keeping with our practice of presenting films dealing with the environment and ecology, the summer film series presents three remarkable documentaries.
Taking Root: The story of the Kenyan Green Movement spurred by Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai. In seeking to stave off the starvation of her community, this woman challenges modern Kenyan life, teaching her people once again how to plant and grow their own. In the process, she uncovers the legacy of colonialism, the forgotten history, the lost culture and tradition of a ravaged land.
