Yvonne Arceneaux - Councilwoman 3rd District
Yvonne Arceneaux has served as a councilwoman in District 3, Richland Farms since 1993. She and her husband live on a half-acre lot and have raised ducks, donkeys and chickens. Although Arceneaux strongly advocates the continued protection of the agriculture zoning that has preserved Richland Farms, she has witnessed the overcrowding of livestock and illegal subdivision of property. She has been criticized for enforcing regulations, but is frustrated with the abusive behavior afforded by the current zoning and fears a greater backlash in years to come.
Idyllic Richland Farms of the Past

IFarm Life & 4H Club
"The 4H club is an agricultural program where children can come in and raise animals."
Politics & Regulation of Land
"Many other cities are not allowing horses to be raised in their communities... and we still do that in the farms. It's a very unique community."
"Landowners that don't live there see it differently... They don't maintain it."
After the screening, KCET Cinema Series host Pete Hammond conversed with director Fernando Ferreira Meirelles (City of Gold), and writer Anthony McCarten.
All around the United States is a 100-mile border zone where one can be searched and one's things seized. Policies way beyond what the constitution allows is regularly implemented. Artists drew on select sites. Here's what they realized.
Created by policymakers in the 1940s, the border zone extends 100 miles inland from the nation’s land and sea boundaries and houses nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population. It's also where the 4th amendment rights of the people have been subverted.
We have forgotten how to be medicine to the land, and to ourselves. The members of Syuxtun Collective are revisiting lost indigenous wisdom of learning and listening, of harvesting and preparing plant medicine in participation with nature.
