Friday, July 23, 2021 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Add to calendar

Please join the University of California, Merced for a discussion with Matt Wechsler and Will Travis from the film, "Sustainable".


About the Film: "A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.


The narrative of the film focuses on Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his profitless wasteland and pioneers the sustainable food movement in Chicago.


Sustainable travels the country seeking leadership and wisdom from some of the most forward thinking farmers like Bill Niman, Klaas Martens and John Kempf – heroes who challenge the ethical decisions behind industrial agriculture. It is a story of hope and transformation, about passion for the land and a promise that it can be restored to once again sustain us.


Join the panel discussion Friday, July 23rd at 3 PM PST via Zoom. 


The film can be viewed on Kanopy, Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Vudu or VHX.


Free and open to the public.
