About the Film
A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of Americaâ€™s food system, from the agricultural issues we face â€” soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use â€” to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.
The narrative of the film focuses on Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his profitless wasteland and pioneers the sustainable food movement in Chicago.
