Join us for an exclusive preview screening of CRACKDOWN! followed by an expert panel discussion on the benefits and challenges of keeping hens in the city as a part of the urban food movement.
In the wake of the 100-mile diet and the public’s increasing desire for local and organic food, Crackdown! tells the story of Canada’s urban chicken keepers, a smart, savvy and rapidly-growing band of mavericks who just want access to fresh eggs at home for their families. It is a short, creative documentary-style video that takes a satirical look at what it means to raise chickens in your backyard – and become a criminal for doing so.
