“Hearts of Glass”, JenTen Productions’ award-winning new documentary, will be coming to a town near you this fall. The seven-stop screening and discussion tour is being supported in part by a grant from ThinkWY|Wyoming Humanities.
The documentary will be shown at Central Wyoming College on Monday, September 16th from 6 – 9 pm. For more details on this showing, click here.
“Hearts of Glass” follows the tumultuous first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest of Jackson Hole, a social impact business with a dual mission: growing produce year-round in a challenging mountain environment and providing meaningful employment for people with disabilities.
Watch the trailer:
“Hearts of Glass” reveals the highs and lows of an innovative startup. It also offers an intimate look into the professional and personal lives of an often overlooked population in our communities. The film is as much about sustainable food production as it is about social entrepreneurship, disability advocacy, and community inclusion.
For me, “Hearts of Glass” represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share a story of possibilities unfolding in my own backyard. Prepare to be transported. This is as close to being part of a high-tech agricultural startup and social experiment as many of us will ever get. It will challenge your perceptions about abilities, the benefits of meaningful employment and the power of inclusion.
– Jennifer Tennican, Director and Producer
Students, faculty and the general public are invited to see the film and stay for a panel discussion following each screening. The panel will reflect an inclusive mix of participants, including the film’s director, Vertical Harvest employees and local experts from the community and/or hosting academic institution.
