The new award-winning documentary film "The Garden" opens at the Hollywood Theatre this week.  The film follows the inspiring struggle of a large, vibrant community garden in South Central Los Angeles, which arose as a place of healing after the L.A. Riots in 1992.  A backroom deal between the city and a land developer threatens to close the garden.  "The Garden" tells the story of mostly Latin American immigrants who organized and fought back.  Toni Tabora-Roberts spoke with Julie Bergman Sender, one of the Executive Producers, and Vivianne Nacif, a Co-Producer, about the film.
