Here it becomes a cautionary tale of the Internet from filmmaker Neal Broffman. Tripathi, a musically inclined Brown University student from an assimilated Indian-American Bryn Mawr household, disappeared in March of that year. Worried relatives utilized Facebook, YouTube, and other online resources in their frantic search. The digerati were supportive...initially. Then the deadly Boston Marathon bombs went off (detonated by two Islamic-militant Chechen brothers), and the still-missing Sunil somehow got labeled as a prime suspect. Web-based journalists (the site Reddit is especially criticized here) feverishly re-tweeted the unconfirmed rumors and misinformation, and Tripathi's already-desperate family found themselves vilified and threatened by cyberspace trolls in a cruel rush to judgment. That social media crawls with obscene bigots, bullies, and sociopaths is not exactly a revelation, but this film offers a moment-by-moment depiction of how \"fake news\" and high-tech lynching happens. Tripathi’s fate is ultimately revealed in this tragic but instructive story that could not be more timely. Recommended. Aud: C, P. (C.

In Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi, the Tripathi family tells a story of the healing and destructive power of social media and director Neal Broffman offers an intimate look at the enduring love that unites a family in crisis.\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-canvas-width=\"397.6370450980392\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv data-canvas-width=\"397.6370450980392\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/179538465?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" width=\"500\" height=\"281\" frameborder=\"0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\"An exceptional documentary about a tragic misidentification that fires on all cylinders.\" - Gary Garrison, \u003cem\u003eWay Too Indie\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ci\u003e\"\u003c\/i\u003eHelp Us Find Sunil Tripathi is exceptionally moving as it pieces together a sensitive study of the victims of depression and mental illness. ... Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi demands audiences to separate what is trending from what is true, and this compelling doc is an urgent reminder to see the human face behind the hashtag.

Here it becomes a cautionary tale of the Internet from filmmaker Neal Broffman. Tripathi, a musically inclined Brown University student from an assimilated Indian-American Bryn Mawr household, disappeared in March of that year. Worried relatives utilized Facebook, YouTube, and other online resources in their frantic search. The digerati were supportive...initially. Then the deadly Boston Marathon bombs went off (detonated by two Islamic-militant Chechen brothers), and the still-missing Sunil somehow got labeled as a prime suspect. Web-based journalists (the site Reddit is especially criticized here) feverishly re-tweeted the unconfirmed rumors and misinformation, and Tripathi's already-desperate family found themselves vilified and threatened by cyberspace trolls in a cruel rush to judgment. That social media crawls with obscene bigots, bullies, and sociopaths is not exactly a revelation, but this film offers a moment-by-moment depiction of how \"fake news\" and high-tech lynching happens. Tripathi’s fate is ultimately revealed in this tragic but instructive story that could not be more timely. Recommended. Aud: C, P. (C.

But now, against all odds, in the empty lots, in the old factory yards, and the sad, sagging blocks of company housing, seeds of change are taking root. With the most vacant lots in the country, citizens are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. Dedicated citizens have started an urban environmental movement that is transforming not just a city after its collapse, but also America at the end of its industrial age. Urban Roots shows dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people – as in much of the county – have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the lifeless offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food from thousands of miles away. The people of Detroit have taken on the enormous task of changing this for themselves, and to understand their story is to understand how we can change it for us all.

But now, against all odds, in the empty lots, in the old factory yards, and the sad, sagging blocks of company housing, seeds of change are taking root. With the most vacant lots in the country, citizens are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. Dedicated citizens have started an urban environmental movement that is transforming not just a city after its collapse, but also America at the end of its industrial age. Urban Roots shows dedicated Detroiters working tirelessly to fulfill their vision for locally-grown, sustainably farmed food in a city where people – as in much of the county – have found themselves cut off from real food and limited to the lifeless offerings of fast food chains, mini-marts, and grocery stores stocked with processed food from thousands of miles away. The people of Detroit have taken on the enormous task of changing this for themselves, and to understand their story is to understand how we can change it for us all. Urban Roots is a story that reveals that the best in us can prevail in the most difficult of times; and in the most difficult of places, new hope emerges.  This growing movement of urban farmers is changing the way people think about food—and life in the “D”. It took men like Henry Ford, William Durant, and Lee Iacocca to build this city, but it’s taken a bunch of strong willed self-taught urban farmers to save it.\u003c\/span\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSELECTED SCREENINGS \u0026amp; EVENTS\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOfficial Selection Reykjavik International Film Festival (RIFF) World Premier\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Eco Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Planet in Focus Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Imagesante Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection San Francisco Green Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection One World Film Festival\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Food for Thought Film Series\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eOfficial Selection Dig In!

In addition to giving background on Motor City’s rise and fall, and introducing viewers to the folks behind a handful of urban farms across town, the film digs into important topics like the racial implications of gardening. Despite its negative associations with slavery, the film argues, working the land can be a powerful vehicle of self-determination and empowerment for Black Americans — especially in a long-neglected city like Detroit, where residents have learned the hard way not to expect change from above.”  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb\u003e- Grist\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003e“You may have heard about Detroit’s urban farming movement, but the documentary Urban Roots brings it alive by getting down in the furrows with the growers who are turning the city’s vacant lots into fields of abundance.” - \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cb\u003eUtne Reader\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003e“\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cspan style=\"font-weight: 400;\"\u003eThe sense that emerges from all these voices is one of Detroit agriculture as a complex social ecosystem, growing and developing in a way that is both interdependent and organic as the produce it brings to bear.
