Documentary profiles five people involved in the urban farming movement

Thursday, Nov. 17 — The documentary "The Kings of Flint" screened last Sunday as part of the East Lansing Film Festival — but it's already got a sequel. Michigan State University faculty members Geri Alumit Zeldes and
Troy Hale host the premiere of
Food Fighters” at 10 a.m. Friday
in room 145 of the Communication Arts and Sciences Building on the MSU campus.

The film profiles five people involved in Flint's urban farming movement.

“The farmers in this film represent a class of dedicated, hardworking
individuals who are trying their best to introduce a sustainable
industry that helps to address issues of joblessness, poverty and crime,
among other issues in the city of Flint,” Phillips said in press materials.

"Flint River Farm," the third film in the series, is scheduled to be released next year. For more information, visit the MSU website.
