MV5BMTA1MDczNjU5MjVeQTJeQWpwZ15BbWU4MDcyODI4MTkx._V1_UY268_CR9,0,182,268_AL_For the third consecutive year, Conscientious Projector partners with the annual Old Pasadena Summer Cinema series with two presentations: Plant This Movie on Thursday, July 14, 7:00 p.m. at Armory Center for the Arts; and Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things on Thursday, July 28, 7:00 p.m. at the Pasadena Senior Center.

Plant This Movie is an inspiring look at the evolution and impact of the international urban agriculture movement across the United States and around the world. Narrated by Daryl Hannah, director Karney Hatch’s comprehensive film traces the history of locally grown food from the Victory Gardens in the U.S. during World War II, to blighted areas of today transformed by the spread of inner city farming and community supported agriculture, providing urban dwellers with a renewed connection to nature and the methods of organic food production.

UnknownMinimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things asks, “How might your life be better with less? Best-selling authors Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus have made their life’s work about living a meaningful life with less stuff while making room for more time, more passion, more experiences, more growth, more contribution, more contentment, more freedom. Director Matt D’Avella follows them as they introduce us to other minimalists from many walks of life, who have found joy and satisfaction in living in simplicity.
A community discussion follows each film. Admission is free. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. The Senior Center is at 85 E. Holly in Old Pasadena.
