On Thursday, July 2, Earth House and Lockerbie Central United Methodist hosted Food Independence Day here in Indianapolis. It was the first of what will hopefully be an annual event. Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 1, 2010!
It was just a great night. We had fifteen different sponsors, an Indianapolis city council member show up, Jose Evans, and over 250 people come through the door. We screened the film THE GARDEN and the movie’s director Scott Kennedy was in attendance. He left impressed with what Indianapolis food activists were trying to do.
[Scott] Hamilton comes at the invitation of Mike Oles, Lockerbie Methodist lay leader and founder of the Earth House Collective Film Series — which is quickly becoming the city’s premiere showcase for screenings and discussions of socially conscious films.
The question and answer session with Scott Kennedy was also great. I will post footage from the Q and A when it gets online. But, here is Scott answering questions. The movie got a standing ovation.
