The Springfield Community Grange and the Watsonville Film Festival present a night of documentary films produced in the Social Documentation Master’s Program at UC Santa Cruz. The free screening brings together four short films under the name of “Food, Farms and Family” as the documentaries share common themes of food justice, migration and families, communities and empowerment, and working towards a sustainable future.

“Growing People” by Dana Forsberg profiles three sisters reconnecting to their heritage and building community on an organic farm in Hawaii.

“Guajiros” by Kati Greaney follows two young Haitian agronomists as they travel around Cuba learning about sustainable agriculture.

“Lonche” by Claire Weissbluth, tells a tale of two taco trucks (shot locally in the Pajaro Valley) showing what it takes to feed a hungry workforce.

“Vida Diferida [Life, Deferred]” by Brenda Avila-Hanna is a coming-of-age story of an undocumented teenager in New Mexico.

Tacos, tortas and burritos will be available from J&S Catering, a local taco truck featured in one of the films, as well as other refreshments.

The screening takes place on July 26 at 7 pm at the Springfield Grange, located at the corner of Werner and Hall roads in Pajaro. All films are bilingual.
