Growing Change follows the filmmaker’s journey to understand why current food systems leave hundreds of millions of people in hunger. It’s a journey to understand how the world will feed itself in the future in the face of major environmental challenges. At the core of Venezuela’s country-wide process toward “food sovereignty” are principles of social justice and sustainability. It’s an inspirational story full of lively characters, thought provoking insights, stunning scenery and ideas to transform the food system. The screening will be followed by a panel of speakers and Q & A.
