A documentary from filmmaker Raphael Sbarge (A Concrete River: Reviving the Waters of Los Angeles) and KCET, LA FOODWAYS looks at the storied agricultural history of Los Angeles to understand present foodwaste challenges and opportunities to bring fresh foods to urban communities.

From the importance of orange crops in the 19th century to the massive scale of food waste in the U.S., the film is a deep dive into the different manners in which local organizations are coming together to ensure the future of agriculture in the region in order to identify environmentally friendly solutions for the future.
