BIFF film screening — Common Ground

March 22 @ 7:00 pm

Snow coats the coop and barns and fields at Moon in the Pond Farm.

Berkshire International Film Festival’s Environmental Film Focus Series presents the awardwinning film Common Ground at the Lenox Town Hall.

Common Ground is the highly anticipated sequel to the juggernaut success documentary Kiss the Ground, which touched over 1 billion people globally and inspired the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to put $20 billion toward soil health. Directed by Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell

By fusing journalistic exposé with deeply personal stories from those on the front lines of the sustainable food movement, COMMON GROUND unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system.

The film reveals how racist practices forged our current farm system in which farmers of all colors are literally dying to feed us.

The film profiles a hopeful and uplifting movement of white, black, and indigenous farmers who are using alternative, regenerative models of agriculture that could balance the climate, save our health and stabilize America’s economy—before it’s too late.

Q&A with community members and BIFF programmer, Lillian Lennox immediately following the screening.
