5 – 8pm: AGRA Watch Film Night & Potluck!

CAGJ invites you to our fifth AGRA Watch film night. These monthly film nights address issues that are directly relevant to the work of scholars, activists and others on issues of development, neoliberalism, agriculture, and African affairs. This month, we will be showing ‘We Feed the World‘, a film by Austrian filmmaker Erwin Wagenhofer that traces the origins of the food we eat.

WE FEED THE WORLD is a film about food and globalisation, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question what world hunger has to do with us . Interviewed are not only fishermen, farmers, agronomists, biologists and the UN’s Jean Ziegler, but also the director of production at Pioneer, the world’s largest seed company, as well as Peter Brabeck, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé International, the largest food company in the world.

Location: Cascade People’s Center, 309 Pontius Avenue N, Seattle, WA 98109.  Please RSVP to [email protected] Drop-ins are welcome, but please RSVP if you get the chance. Please bring some food or drinks to share.
