Truck Farm Movie Trailer

Filmmakers Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis (of King Corn fame) are working on this new documentary, TRUCK FARM. This teaser was shown at the recent TEDx Manhattan conference on sustainable food. Check out this 2 minute trailer, with music, to see how they get started. What a fun and innovative concept!
