VOICES OF TRANSITION
VOICES OF TRANSITION (France, 2011, 52 min.)
United States Premiere Taking us to France, England and Cuba, this passionate film on farmer and community-led responses to food insecurity presents solutions that are excellent in their common sense, simplicity and low cost, as well as their ecological integrity. The positive vision for food includes building resilience and transforming our societies so that they can move beyond the challenges to come. The practices shown in the film promote local economies, strengthen neighborhood ties and encourage the free dissemination of knowledge. These methods promise a future that will be more energy-efficient and will improve on our current strategy of addressing climate change. Directed and produced by Nils Aguilar.
Introduced by Turner Freeman, Adult Librarian, Information Services, D.C. Public Library. Discussion with Bernadine Prince, Co-Executive Director, FRESHFARM Markets.
