We’ve been working on a special documentary film for the last two years, and we are thrilled to celebrate the first public screening with the Pueblo community.

Join us for the exclusive Pueblo community premiere of MIRASOL, Looking at the Sun. A film by Ben Knight. Presented and Produced by the Palmer Land Conservancy.

In this groundbreaking new film, award-winning filmmaker Ben Knight challenges us to think about land and water use in the West through an intimate portrait of a rural farming community in Pueblo, Colorado as they fight to protect their water and land, and in turn, their culture and livelihood.

About the Film

Water is a finite resource — and an essential one.
For farmers, it’s everything.

MIRASOL is a humble, but powerful rallying cry that helps us understand what it would mean to lose connection to what sustains us. “This land should be like our only child,” says one farmer. “We should be protecting it with everything we have.” 

The film is an invitation to stand up for all of the hardworking families and their thriving fields on the fringes of cities across the country that are so often overlooked, or taken for granted. As a community, and as a nation, we have important choices to make that will define our future.
