“The Greening of Cuba”
A Food First film that profiles Cuban farmers and scientists working to reinvent a sustainable agriculture, based on ecological principles and local knowledge rather than imported agricultural inputs. In their quest for self sufficiency, Cubans combine time-tested traditional methods with cutting edge bio-technology.
“Zapata’s Garden/ El Huerto de Zapata”
Shot and produced by indigenous men and women video makers in the Autonomous Municipaltiy of Emiliano Zapata, this video looks at the new society that the Zapatista’s are building. Zapata’s Garden shows how this new municipality is fighting the effects of globalization and government corruption through their work in their collective garden. Community members talk about the importance of collective work in building this new society.
The Community Alliance for Global Justice is an organization of volunteers who contribute their skills, time and money to work for a just local and global economy.
