Greening the Revolution

Katie Curran | 2012 | 80 min.

2013 Official Selection

Truly an independent film, self-taught and first-time director Katie Curran backpacked across the world to document today’s profit-centered food system — a war on the poor, especially farmers. While agribusiness reaps record wealth, protesters cry for affordable food and peasants choose between land and death. But farmers and workers are organized and fighting back, while implementing their own sustainable alternatives. Filmed in Cuba, Mexico, Haiti, Brazil, Kenya, Zambia, India and the United States. Unlike other food-related movies, this documentary focuses on the struggles and triumphs of those most affected by food’s globalization, the small farmers and revolutionaries of the world.
