The plot summary from Sourlands is as follows:
SOURLANDS weaves a provocative tale of ecology, energy and agriculture, told from a deep forest surrounded by sprawl. From award-winning journalist Jared Flesher. In the Sourlands of New Jersey, a rampaging deer herd, invasive plants, and wholesale habitat destruction threaten the local ecosystem. Farmers in the surrounding valley battle against high land prices, high property taxes, and increasingly erratic weather patterns. A group of local engineers search for new ways to save energy and stop global warming. Pay close attention, and the challenges facing this community look a lot like the challenges facing ecosystems, farmers, and energy visionaries everywhere. The message of cautious hope presented in the film is just as universal: To start solving complicated environmental problems, we need to forgo quick fixes and start restoring the natural world - and people's connection to it - from the forest floor up.
There is a paid parking garage next to the restaurant on Church Street or you can find street parking. The restaurant features Italian cuisine.
