I Spoke to a Tomato Plant

I Spoke to a Tomato Plant is a documentary, which examines how Philadelphians use gardening as a means of healing trauma. Honing on the relational aspects of gardening, the film explores the different dimensions of how people reconnect to others, their community and themselves. Matching moving cinematography and a stirring soundscape, Christian Hayden and co. captures heartfelt moments while invoking a bit of speculation, asking in step: how can we dream while we are awake?
