Unbroken Ground is a new documentary film presented by Patagonia Provisions that explores the critical role food will play in solving the environmental crisis. The film, directed by Chris Malloy of Farm League, covers four areas of regenerative agriculture and tells the stories of the people behind these pioneering groups: Wes Jackson of The Land Institute, Jill & Dan O’Brien of Cheyenne River Ranch, Stephen Jones of The Bread Lab, and finally, Lummi Island Wild Cooperative.
“Revolutions start from the bottom. They never start from the top,” notes Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard in the film. “At the bottom are these people who are willing to break the paradigm. Putting a small group together, all believing in the same thing, all going in the same direction… you can’t believe what we could accomplish with that.”
Patagonia, the California-based outdoor apparel company, is a certified B-corporation and internationally recognized for its high quality product and commitment to environmentalism. In 2012, Patagonia launched Patagonia Provisions, a line of ethically and sustainably sourced food products, which includes wild pink & sockeye salmon, buffalo jerky, soups and fruit + nut bars.
The Unbroken Ground film tour takes the 25 minute feature film to 13 stops across the country. Screenings are free and open to the public. Attendees will enjoy the film, hear from a panel of speakers and sample bites prepared by local chefs using the Patagonia Provisions products. See the full schedule below.
