Thursday, Dec. 7


The future of our food system determines the future of mankind.

SUSTAINABLE reveals the crisis facing America’s food system, and the community of leaders who are determined to fix it.

From Klaas Martens’ Einkorn fields in rural New York to Bill Niman’s cattle ranch off the Pacific coast, industry pioneers around the nation join in to reveal the profound connection between human health and environmental protection. Marty Travis, a seventh-generation Illinois farmer who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness, transforms his profitless wasteland and leads the sustainable food movement in Chicago. In Iowa, Matt Liebman discovers a solution to combat the trifecta of drought, flooding and soil runoff, and a young Amish man in Ohio emerges as an agricultural leader who will feed the world despite climate extremes and limited natural resources. Additional key interviews include Rick Bayless, Dan Barber, Mark Bittman, Marion Nestle, John Ikerd, Kelly Brownell, Nicolette Niman and Fred Kirschenmann.

Sustainable 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.

Inhabit: Permaculture Perspective

INHABIT explores the many environmental and agricultural issues facing us today and examines solutions that are being applied using the ecological design process called 'Permaculture'. Permaculture is a design lens that uses the principles found in ecosystems to help shift our impact from destructive to regenerative. Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices ranging from rural, suburban, and urban landscapes.

Running time: 92 minutes

"Not only does it make a compelling case for why permaculture solutions are needed, but it also highlights a number of people involved in permaculture, as well as some of the solutions that are working for them." -
