Description

Part of Shorts Program 6: DocuNation

In having lawns, are we giving in to societal expectations that have no real rationale, or do lawns have more meaning than we are typically willing to give them? Is the grass really always greener on the other side? For a lot of people, “in lawns we trust” is more than a motto: it’s a way of life. Conversely, many folks see their lawn as an enemy. American Lawn explores this fascinating dichotomy, resulting in a lighthearted, surprisingly insightful, and kaleidoscopic portrait of Americans of all stripes grappling with their relationships to lawn.
