I watched this great documentary today, about how globalization and capitalism are impoverishing farmers across the world. What can I say? It’s an education! It’s astonishing, enlightening, inspiring. It makes you want to cheer for the human spirit. And if that’s not enough, it has terrific music from all over the world!
The film, written, directed and produced by Katie Curran, has won several awards:
…there’s more, but I’ve had it with all this copying and pasting. See for yourself! And this is the official synopsis: “A high-definition documentary explores the far-reaching effects of international food injustice, from world hunger to the consumption of industrial food. Using food as a symbol of inequality, we explain and expose the corrupt cycle of globalization that perpetuates systems of poverty and oppressive social control. We then present hope: successful, sustainable communities achieving food justice and freedom through the power of the people. Filmed in India, Kenya, Zambia, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Haiti and the United States.”
