Truck Farm (2011)
Director: Ian Cheney
48 minutes
English; Turkish subtitles

Truck Farm tells the story of a new generation of quirky urban farmers. Viewers are trucked across New York to see the city’s funkiest urban farms, and to find out if America’s largest city can learn to feed itself. Blending serious exposition with serious silliness, Truck Farm entreats viewers to ponder the future of urban farming, and to consider whether sustainability needs a dose of whimsy to be truly sustainable.

The owner of the first known truck farm, Ian Cheney’s adventure turns into an infectious musical of agricultural practices throughout the city.
