Trailer for The Garden, Oscar Nominee for Best Documentary

Oscar Movie Preview: The Garden For Best Documentary

Since it can often be hard to see some of the Oscar-nominated documentaries in theaters, it's nice to get a taste of them before Oscar night — not to mention that it might help you when you fill out your Oscar ballot. So this week I'll feature as many of the Best Documentary previews as I can.

The intense trailer for The Garden does what good trailers ought to do: It makes me insanely curious about how this story ends. A look through the LA Times could probably tell me, but I'd rather watch this tale unfold onscreen. The movie's title refers to the 14-acre community garden in South Central Los Angeles (the largest of its kind in the United States) which was created as a way to heal the community in the wake of the L.A. riots in '92.

When the garden's land is sold to a wealthy developer for less than fair-market value, the farmers — mostly Latin American immigrants — take on City Hall with their plight. The trailer alone might make you feel frustrated, and it's interesting to see the celebrities who join the cause.

To watch the trailer for yourself,

i was wondering what the premise was of this documentary, and i like the whole story behind it. i'm definitely going to check it out and see what the resolution is for it all - it's always a shame when $$ comes as a priority to some folks rather than the 'bettering the quality of life' for some of the population and doing something that is really good for the community and environment.
