Dutch premiere: Crops of the Future
After “The World according to Monsanto” and “Our daily poison”, Marie-Monique Robin offers us an encouraging study of agroecology and the solutions to our planet’s food crisis. How to feed the world in 2050? Through agroecology practices. While reminding us that one sixth of humanity still goes hungry today, and analysing the reasons for this, her film demonstrates that the situation is far from irrevocable, so long as we’re prepared to modify the current agricultural paradigm and rethink our management and organisation of the food chain.
Organised jointly with SOS Faim (Belgium). In French with English subtitles.
