Filmmakers Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson have made stars of Georgia farmers in their latest film.
The documentary called "Grow" premiered tonight at the Cox Capitol theater in downtown Macon. The film deals with a whole new crop of farmers in Georgia who wanted to make a difference in the U-S food system by working the fields.
"The food system as we know it now is broken," Anthony said "Its causing a lot of problems with the environment, with people's health and with the economy; And once people realize the importance of eating this way then we just feel that a lot of problems will be solved."
"Support your local farmers," Masterson implored. "If you support your local farmers, you're supporting systems that can sustain a whole community, local economies, local health, the survival of small towns and large towns alike."
Anthony and Masterson say they wanted to make a film that would inspire young people to consider farming as a career to help the economy.
