GREENING THE REVOLUTION
This stunning 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, the documentary explains and exposes the corrupt cycle of globalization that perpetuates systems of poverty and oppressive social control. The documentary then presents 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.
USA, 2011, 82mins, in English and Spanish with English subtitles, Katie Curran, dir.
