 PROGRAMS WITH PROFESSOR LAFFEY AT SMC

The Environmental Affairs Committee is proud to present the last event in our spring 2008 Green Professional Development Series

Documentary Films for Teaching Sustainability
Friday, May 9, 10am – Noon, HSS 252
Featuring SMC faculty / filmmaker, Sheila Laffey’s most recent success,
SOUTH CENTRAL FARM: OASIS ON A CONCRETE DESERT
This documentary presents the controversial story of the South Central Farm in Los Angeles, the largest community garden in the country, which once fed over 350 families in need.  Emphasizing the benefits of urban farms, this film brings together celebrity tree sitters, citizen supporters, the developer of the land, and dedicated farmers and gardeners. Updates on the evicted farmers and their efforts to sustain themselves physically and spiritually conclude this dramatic film. (24 mins.)
View clips from recently acclaimed environmental films including: The 11th Hour, Manufactured Landscapes, The End of Suburbia, and Edens: Lost and Found. Join in an open discussion and brainstorming session with filmmaker Sheila Laffey, faculty and students about how to put documentary films to work in classrooms across the campus. Everyone Welcome!

 This series is made possible by the SMC Foundation Social Science Chair of Excellence grant. More info: Katherine_amber@smc.edu.
