Film maker Chris Malloy asks, how can different aspects of agriculture and our food economy alter to change our relationships to our land and our oceans.
The really fabulous feminist film buffs over at Reel Women host a monthly short film night that promotes the work of female filmmakers. On August 18, they are showing a night of films about food, and as part of this event, will be screening the Greenhorns’s own The Solution to Pollution is Life.” We are psyched and honored to be a part of this. If you’re in the Cambridge area, come see us at the Cambridge Art House on the 18th from 21:00-23:00!
A beautiful walk around Soul Fire Farm with the thoughtful, insightful, and fiercely passionate Leah Penniman. This film was produced by The Next System Project and the Laura Flanders Show, as part of their series on gender, race, and the next system.
I’d write more about the farm, but my paraphrasing would never be as powerful as their own words: “Soul Fire Farm is committed to ending racism and injustice in the food system. We raise life-giving food and act in solidarity with people marginalized by food apartheid. With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, we work to reclaim our collective right to belong to the earth and to have agency in the food system. We bring diverse communities together on this healing land to share skills on sustainable agriculture, natural building, spiritual activism, health and environmental justice. We are training the next generation of activist-farmers and strengthening the movements for food sovereignty and community self-determination.”
