Network Theory Trailer

 

Filmed in Appalachian Ohio, a region all-too-familiar with the boom and bust cycles of an extractive economy, Network Theory features six agrarian entrepreneurs who weave open, collaborative networks to create a community-based food economy. The film travels across a web of inter-connected enterprises, including a worker-owned restaurant, a pizzeria, a community cannery, a farm, and an urban garden where visionary network weaver June Holley reveals that everything you need to know about cultivating a robust community can be learned in a garden. The film will appeal to rural and urban audiences alike, demonstrating the emerging power of collaborative, cross-regional networks to stimulate large-scale change and reinvigorate our democracy. The film was directed by Brad Masi (PolyCultures, For the Love of Food) with cinematography by Mika Johnson (the Amerikans). 

Running Time: 44 minutes
