Common Ground

Documentary Rated: NR 105 min


This important, timely film explores the next chapter in the soil and food crisis first outlined in Kiss the Ground, the wildly popular documentary that touched more than 1 billion people globally and inspired the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to put $20 billion toward soil health. By fusing journalistic exposé with deeply personal stories from those on the front lines of the food movement, Common Ground unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system. The answer, they argue, lies in coordinated regenerative farming practices and public health initiatives. Actors Laura Dern, Jason Momoa (above), Rosaria Dawson, Donald Glover and Woody Harrelson help explain why.

“…With a fantastic, robust, easy-to-navigate companion website that supports the movie’s information and offers way for young people to get involved, kids who watch Common Ground will be the better for it.” — Tara McNamara, Common Sense Media
“This film might make you just as much a true believer. Yes, Virginia, there is regenerative agriculture.” — Donald Liebenson, The Chicago Reader
