GROW! The Movie - Filmed in Georgia

After reading the horrifying, but potentially life-saving books such as The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite (By David Kessler); Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating with More Than 75 Recipes (by Mark Bittman), and Michael Pollan's books The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals; In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto; and Food Rules: An Eater's Manual; this video project hit a nerve. I recently visited Serenbe, Georgia, which is about 20 miles from where I live. They have an active organic farming operation. It's a beautiful, but unfortunately rare community.

Here's an intriguing Kickstarter film project by Atlanta-based photographers and filmmakers Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson titled Grow!

According to their bio: "Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson are the wife/husband filmmaker/ photography duo known as Anthony-Masterson. They moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles 5 years ago because they wanted to experience a different part of the country.

Their first film FARM!, a 13 minute documentary about young farmers in Georgia, was shot on the Flip Ultra. In 2008 FARM! was an official selection of both the Rome International Film Festival and the Athens EcoFocus Film Festival. They have since picked up a Panasonic HPX170 P2"
