The Shepherdess
Katie Falkenberg | 2019 | 6 min
A Navajo shepherdess perseveres despite extreme drought in this poetic short film about a rapidly vanishing way of life. "We didn't even go up the mountain because there's no water," she recounts. "Hardships are just lessons and challenges in life and you just can't dwell on it, you have to live through it."

Who's Your Farmer?
Jess Lingle | 2018 | 14 min
Farming is a practice that impacts our health, our environment, our communities and our world. Knowing from where our food really comes and how safely it is grown is becoming increasingly difficult. This film explores farming in Alabama through the eyes of local farmers all across the state that care about the land, the water, and the people they feed.

Follow the Drinking Gourd
Shirah Dedman, Anna Karewicz, Dennis Terry | 2019 | 61 min
Produced by Liberated Lens, an Oakland based social justice film collective, Follow the Drinking Gourd is a family-friendly, funny, and moving feature documentary that connects the legacy of slavery, capitalism, and climate change to our fight for food security. It features many of the movement's major players, including Leah Penniman (author of "Farming While Black"), Naima Penniman (of Climbing Poetree), Chanowk Yisrael (founder of Yisrael Family Urban Farm), stic.man (of hip hop duo, dead prez; founder of RBG Fit Club), and more.
