The Garden is an Oscar-nominated feature documentary that chronicles a senseless collusion of greed and governmental impotence in Los Angeles, culminating in the destruction of the largest urban garden in the United States. A lifeblood for poor immigrant farmers in south Los Angeles since the riots of the early 90s, the garden is ultimately sold out from under the farmers, who go to court and ultimately wage a losing, celebrity-studded PR battle to save their farm.
I was brought in near the end of post-production as the online editor to oversee the finishing of the completed film, and also as offline editor for the trailer.
