April 16-25, 2021
The Pickford Film Center in partnership with many community co-sponsors will present a free online screening of the acclaimed documentary Kiss the Ground, April 16 – 25, in honor of Earth Day 2021.
How about some good news for a change? Here it is: we can reverse global warming. The solution is called “Regenerative Agriculture” and this film presents the research, practice, and hope we need to move forward. Together.People are calling KISS THE GROUND “The Most Important Film You’ll Ever Watch” — which is a really big claim. But it just may be true.
This screening is made possible through grant funds and the generous support of Kiss the Ground and RoCo Films.
