HomeGrown Screening This Weekend

Thanks to Robert McFalls, director and producer of HomeGrown, for alerting us that his documentary about the Dervaes Family and their Path to Freedom homestead in Pasadena will also be screened this weekend at the Ojai-Ventura film festival:

When: Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 3:00pm and Sunday, November 8, 2009 at 10:00am
Where, Cost, and other details: Details are available on the Ojai-Ventura Film Festival website; additional information is available by emailing info@ojaifilmfestival.com or by calling 805.640.1947.

For those of our readers unfamiliar with Path to Freedom, HomeGrown is the inspiring true story of the Dervaes family, who have been “living off the grid” in the heart of urban Pasadena since the mid-1980s. They harvest over 6,000 pounds of produce on less than a quarter of an acre, produce their own biodiesel, and share their lives via a popular website that is known around the world. Mr. McFalls’ film is an intimate human portrait of what itʼs like to live like “Little House on the Prairie” in the 21st century.

More information about the film is available on its website; the trailer is embedded below.
