The Documentary Channel logoApril is Earth Month on the Documentary Channel and they’ve already started off the month with the feature film called “Ingredients: Who’s Your Farmer?”

If you’re a DISH Network (Channel 197) and DIRECTV (Channel 267) subscriber, and of the mind, you may have already caught “Ingredients: Who’s Your Farmer?”, you saw that it was a movie that took a look at the local food movement of inspiring stories of the chefs, farmers and activists who are transforming our broken food system.

But if you’re interested, the Documentary channel also has the following features coming up in April, covering various Earth Month related subjects. That’s if you have a “green” brain!

Other Documentary Channel premieres in the line-up include:

  • “Someplace with a Mountain” (April 7, 8 p.m. ET/PT), the story of the Lapita Navigators, a special group of Pacific Islanders losing their homes and crops as the small group of islands they inhabit disappears at the hand of devastating sea rise (narrated by Chevy Chase)
  • “Save the Farm” (April 8, 8 p.m. ET/PT), an inside look at the largest urban farm in the United States, 14-acres sitting right in the middle of South Central Los Angeles, and the fight to save it from eviction at the hand of a major developer
  • “Tapped” (April 15, 8 p.m. ET/PT), a behind-the-scenes look into the unregulated and unseen world of an industry that aims to privatize and sell back the one resource that ought never become a commodity: our water (from the producers of “Who Killed the Electric Car”)
  • “Kudzu Vine” (April 21, 8 p.m. ET/PT), a stunning ode to the climbing, trailing, and coiling species Pueraria lobata that evokes the agricultural history and mythical textures of the South while paying tribute to the human capacity for improvisation
  • “Bag It” (April 22, 8 p.m. ET/PT), the story of an average man who’s entire life changes when he makes the simple decision to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store
  • “Water Wars” (April 29, 8 p.m. ET/PT), a shocking examination of the water plights of Bangladesh, a nation falling prey to every threat from water known to man including rising seas, devastating floods, droughts, even arsenic poisoning (narrated by Martin Sheen)


Also, if this is indeed something you like, you might want to check out my review of Vegucated. A movie where one woman tries to persuade a few meat eaters to consider being Vegan. Believe it or not, it messed up this meat eater… that’s for sure.
