Pre-event: FAF #7 – movie screening
June 3, 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
🌱 Pre-event: Food Autonomy Festival – Resistance & Movement Building 🌱
On Saturday 3rd June at 20:30 we will have a movie screening at Filmhuis Cavia of ‘Frutos de Resistencia’ & Minga, voices of resistance’!
The documentary Frutos de Resistencia portrays five poignant stories of hope and resistance from the sea of plastic in Almeria, the focal point of industrial agriculture in Europe. Through the eyes of women, migrants and trade unionists, everyday experiences of exclusion and exploitation by Spanish society are made visible. Frutos de Resistencia offers powerful perspectives on organizing people together to fight for their fundamental rights in industrial agriculture. The documentary was created as part of our long-standing cooperation with workers and the SOC-SAT trade union in Andalusia.
From Patagonia to the mountains of Mexico, communities are uprising. They denounce the destruction of their territories and their lives. Drawing on their cultural heritage, they organize themselves to stop the carnage and to create inspiring solutions. The documentary Minga is an echo of these voices of resistance. Pauline and Damien spent two years with them and let them have total freedom of speech. Their testimonials, coming from so many different lands, weave a common story, colored with wisdom and determination. The shooting was done with the smallest ecological footprint possible (land and sea routes only).
The donations gathered are to support the production of the movies!
Let’s come together to connect, co-learn and resist!
