This documentary "The Garden" kept popping up on my Netflix "Movies I'll Love" category, but for some reason I would just skip it every time, not sure why it wasn't catching my eye right away, but I'm glad I finally saw it. Its been a while since I've seen a film that stirred all sorts of emotions in me... anger, frustration, sadness, joy, but most importantly inspiration to fight for something you love, to fight for your community, and to fight agains injustice. I highly recommend this documentary to all freedom fighters, community organizers, and honestly I think everyone should watch it, I believe it's crucial for us to know and understand about other peoples struggles and communities in need. This film is Hella Breezy Approved!!!
