Want to watch interesting documentaries with interesting people who want to learn more about the world around us? Join BCD at their regular monthly Movie Night.
On Friday, September 4th, BCD will be screening Growing Change, a documentary that looks at one of the most exciting experiments in the world to grow a fair and sustainable food system.
Growing Change follows the filmmaker’s journey to understand why current food systems leave hundreds of millions of people in hunger. It’s a journey to understand how the world will feed itself in the future in the face of major environmental challenges.
The documentary begins with an investigation of the 2008 global food crisis, looking at the long-term underlying causes. Will expanding large-scale, energy-intensive agriculture, be the solution or re problems? If we already produce enough food to feed the world why do so many people go hungry?
After hearing about efforts in Venezuela to develop a more equitable and sustainable food and agriculture system, the filmmaker heads there to see if it’s working and find out what we might be able to learn from this giant experiment.
