Occupy the Farm will screen at the Bijou Theater for the week of Earth Day (Monday April 20 through Thursday April 23). The film tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a public research farm and plant it with 2 acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development. The Village Voice calls the film, "Riveting from the start." Speakers will follow each screening. View the trailer and join the Facebook event.
