A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of our food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — 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 the future.

This movie features some of the most forward thinking farmers like Bill Niman, Klaas Martens and John Kempf – heroes who challenge the ethical decisions behind industrial agriculture. It follows 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.It is a story of hope and transformation, and passion for the land. 

Annie Speicher and Matt Wechsler are the storytellers at Hourglass Films behind “Sustainable”. The film recently won the 2016 Accolade Global Humanitarian Award for Outstanding Achievement. Their past work includes the 2012 New York Emmy-nominated documentary “Different is the New Normal”, which aired nationally on PBS and was narrated by Michael J. Fox. To view the trailer:  https://vimeo.com/113666503

She was also voted best female singer in the 1990 Rolling Stone Reader’s Poll.

This was followed by the multi-Platinum album Lily which sold over 500,000 albums and contained the highest selling single of 1993 and single of the year. The Day You Went Away We are very pleased to present Wendy and her band playing all of her classic songs in a special 90 minute show.
