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.

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.
