We're proud to be working with Academy Award-nominated environmental filmmaker Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties, A Fierce Green Fire) to distribute his newest film to communities across the US and Canada. 

Evolution of Organic's nationwide screening campaign has already scheduled 40+ events and is growing every day.

Evolution of Organic brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters reject chemical farming and set out to explore organic alternatives. It’s a heartfelt journey of change from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food. By now organic has gone mainstream – split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture. Evolution of Organic is narrated by Frances McDormand and features music from The Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Mallett, Country Joe & The Fish, and David Gans.

WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING

"Organic" has become such a garden variety term that few us give much thought to how this movement might’ve originated. Consequently, Mark Kitchell’s insightful documentary makes for engrossing—and for some viewers, wonderfully nostalgic—viewing as it retraces the first steps of the motley, rebellious pioneers who thumbed their noses at chemical farming and set in motion a wave of change. Much more than just backstory, however, Evolution is essential viewing thanks to the glimpses it offers of the sustainable alternatives waiting on the horizon. Frances McDormand brings a light touch as narrator, taking us chapter by chapter from sun-drenched 1960s counter-culture to a future—if we guide or support it—that is sustainable and delicious..." - Vancouver International Film Festival
