'Flint Food Fighters' debuts at Michigan State U

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A film about urban agriculture debuts this week at Michigan State University.

The 30-minute "Flint Food Fighters" is being shown Friday at the Communication Arts & Sciences Building on the school's East Lansing campus. It features five Flint farmers who are trying to re-define city ordinances and land use.

The screening starts at 10 a.m. in Room 145. Urban farmers featured in the film are expected to be on hand.

The film is the sequel to the "The Kings of Flint" by Michigan State University filmmakers Geri Alumit Zeldes and Troy Hale. That film featured the work of 2 black belts who paired karate and urban farming to revitalize a Flint-area neighborhood.

Next year, "Flint River Farm" is expected to be shown. It's the final film in the series.
