“The Thinking Garden” is a documentation of resilience, following the insightful story of South African women sowing the seeds of change. Three generations of older women in a village in South Africa come together in the dying days of apartheid to create a community garden. Filmed against the backdrop of an epic drought gripping southern Africa, the movie tells the remarkable story of what can happen when women take matters into their own hands and show how the local action in food production can give even the most vulnerable people a measure of control over their own food and their future.


The film has won the Matrix Award for Outstanding Achievement in a BC Short at Vancouver International Women in Film Festival.
