"The Garden" Screening

We would like to thank everyone who came out for our screening of the documentary "The Garden". We would also like to thank Devon Pena for setting it up. We had a great crowd and we lucky enough to have Tezozomoc there to answer questions after the film. Tezozomoc was one of the members of the South Central Farm and played a major role with trying to keep the urban garden at the 41st and Alameda location in South Central Los Angeles.

We are working on continuing the Ventero Film Series this summer. Please keep an eye out for upcoming events. If you have a film that you would like to have shown please call us at 719-672-0557 or email us at
