Gentrification Or Preservation - THE MAN OF THE TREES, SIDELOTS and WITNESS
Followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers

Director: Andrea Trivero
Country: Italy, Burkina Faso  Running Time: 19 min
Daniel Balima is a senior horticulturist from Tenkodogo, a small Sub-Saharan African town in Burkina Faso.  As a child he fell ill with polio and, although growing without the use of his legs, he was able to follow his father in the family nursery, by walking on his hands. In over fifty years of working like this, he has planted more than a million trees. Because of the drought, his country needs much more so he does not stop, and dreams of giving life to another million.

Director: Atieno Nyar Kasagam
Countries: Kenya/USA, Running Time: 16 min
A love story of Black land reclamation told in ritual between Detroit, Alabama and Kenya, following one family on Detroits East Side as their story of urban farming unfolds into a spiritual journey of discovery, loss and re-indigenization. By digging up familial and land roots across the diaspora, the film illuminates all that is sacred in the land and encourages a radical reconsideration of how we view the earth immediately below our feet.  In partnership with a team of community members involved in healing justice, land rights, and agriculture work.


Director: Marie Alarcon
Country: USA, Running Time: 30 min
