One night only: ?Occupy the Farm? screening in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Dec 15, 2014
UPDATE: As of Tuesday, Dec. 16, this event met its threshold on Tugg.com (see below for more information) and will be taking place.

Documentary "Occupy the Farm" tells the story of the battle over the Gill Tract, a large plot of University of California-owned land in Berkeley that the university planned to develop and community members wanted to preserve and use as farmland.

The film, directed by Todd Darling and produced by Steve Brown of Woodside, documents a day in April 2012 in which hundreds of people flooded onto a section of the land and "occupied the farm," planting 15,000 vegetable seedlings in protest.

Watch the trailer for more; the film premiered in early November but is just now making the rounds to Palo Alto, with a one-night showing at the Aquarius next Monday, Dec. 22, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. "Occupy the Farm" filmmakers and "special guests" will also attend for a Q&A after the screening (if it happens).

There's a catch ? the only way this screening will happen is if enough people express an interest by reserving tickets on Tugg, a website that allows people to request screenings at their local theaters, as long as the theater approves and then sells enough tickets.

As of Monday, Dec. 15 at 4 p.m., 82 people have reserved tickets for the Dec. 22 screening, and 13 more are needed by the end of the day.

Go to tugg.com to reserve a ticket.
