Common Ground


Available from Earth Day April 22, 2024

By fusing journalistic exposé with deeply personal stories from those in the front lines of the sustainable food movement, Common Ground unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system. As the highly anticipated sequel to Kiss the Ground, the film profiles a hopeful and uplifting movement of white, black, and indigenous farmers who are using alternative “regenerative” models of agriculture that could balance the climate, save our health, and stabilize America’s economy – before it’s too late.

    This is not just a climate conversation; it's a food justice conversation, it’s an inclusion conversation. Part of what’s missing is an inclusive narrative
