“Seeds of Change” Film Screening

September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5 – $20

Join MOFGA and the Ecology Learning Center for a screening of “Seeds of Change,” a film that chronicles the intersecting stories of lifelong farmer Mark McBrine and several incarcerated men as they grow their own food in a 5-acre prison garden. 

An organic farmer in Maine sets out to transform the prison food system. Filmed over the course of 2 years, Seeds of Change chronicles the intersecting stories of lifelong farmer Mark McBrine and several incarcerated men as they grow their own food on a 5 acre prison garden unlike any other.

Nick Callanan, Director of the Maine Outdoor Film Festival calls it “a complex piece of narrative-building, such an elevated work,” and Governor Janet Mills says “I am proud of this work…Seeds of Change is fundamentally a story of hope.” Seeds of Change premiered at the 2023 Maine International Film Festival and has gone on to receive numerous accolades and awards across the country, including Best Maine Film at the Maine Outdoor Film Festival.

In a place where life is routinely defined by shame and despair, good food can be a gateway to meaning, wellness, and dignity. Discover the power of using organic agriculture as a means to reform our food systems and change the course of people’s lives.
