Two first-year documentary filmmakers spent nearly half a decade on Asparagus: Stalking the American Life, and their dedication paid off in a touching, sometimes funny, and highly provocative film that asks difficult questions about the new world order and old-fashioned American values. Oceana Michigan has been called the Asparagus Capital of the World. Now in the movie, the residents and family farms take on the U.S. War on Drugs, free trade, and a fast-food nation, all to save their beloved “roots.”
