Friday, March 13th – 7pm: We Feed the World and Homegrown Revolution
We Feed the World: Vividly reveals the dysfunctionality of the industrialized world food system and shows what world hunger has to do with us. Close to a billion of the nearly seven billion people on Earth are starving today. But the food we are currently producing could feed 12 billion people. This is a film about food and globalization, fishermen and farmers, the flow of goods and cash flow—a film about scarcity amid plenty. (96 mins.)
Homegrown Revolution: In the midst of a densely urban setting in downtown Pasadena, radical change is taking root. For over twenty years, the Dervaes family have transformed their home into an urban homestead. They harvest nearly 3 tons of organic food from their 1/10 acre garden while incorporating many back-to-basics practices, as well as solar energy and biodiesel. (15 mins.)
