Just 10 miles from Hollywood in South Central Los Angeles is the gangland area of Compton, where in urban farmer Ron Finley’s words ‘the first thing you think about is definitely not potential’. Then we meet his crew of renegade gardeners who are overcoming the neighbourhood’s social challenges by growing their own food. In this new documentary by a young LA filmmaker, her deft and sensitive approach allows the young people from the area, some of whom have other crops on their mind, to reflect on their past and dream of the future.
