South Los Angeles. What comes to mind is gangs, drugs, liquor stores, abandoned buildings and vacant lots. The last thing that you would expect to find is a beautiful garden sprouting up through the concrete, coloring the urban landscape. As part of an urban gardening movement taking root in South LA, people are planting to transform their neighborhoods and are changing their own lives in the process. Calling for people to put down their guns and pick up their shovels, these “gangster gardeners” are creating an oasis in the middle of one of the most notoriously dangerous places in America. CAN YOU DIG THIS follows the inspirational journeys of four unlikely gardeners, discovering what happens when they put their hands in the soil. This is not a story of science and economics. This is a story of the human spirit, inspiring people everywhere to pick up their shovels and “plant some shit.”

Cassidy is the former lead singer, main songwriter, and driving force behind the all female rock quintet, Antigone Rising. Since leaving AR, Cassidy's talent for songwriting has earned her invitations to co-write with legends and Grammy winners including Beth Nielson Chapman and Annie Roboff (Faith Hill), Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty, Santana) Siedah Garrett (Michael Jackson-Man In The Mirror) Motown pioneer Lamont Dozier (Marvin Gaye, Supremes), and Darrell Scott (The Dixie Chicks). Cassidy and The Music began recording in 2013. Cassidy calls this music the best she has ever produced. The self-titled album was a collaborative production between herself, LA-based pianist/producer Brother Sal, producer John Siket, best known for his work with Steve Lillywhite on U2, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads and Dave Matthews. "I'll always have that 70's sound. And I'm a rock singer", she says, "but if you listen to some of my older stuff you'll hear that I lean at times in a more rhythmic, soul-driven direction. Up to this point I haven't had the freedom or maybe the guts to take it fully there although, I did go a bit more pop on the Bohème record. I'm finding my way after being in a band for almost a decade. It's been fun to explore".

What would you do if you started to disappear? At the age of 45, our friend Laury Sacks, an ebullient actress and the doting mother of two small children, had a reputation as the quickest wit in the room. At the age of 46, she began forgetting words. Soon she could barely speak. The film, Looks Like Laury Sounds Like Laury, captures one year in the long, but short journey of frontotemporal dementia, a little-understood disease that strikes people in the prime of life.
