Description

Soyalism (2018)

Directed by Stefano Liberti and Enrico Parenti, 65 minutes

In a world battling with climate change and overpopulation, food production is becoming a huge business for a handful of giant corporations.

Following the industrial production chain of pork from China to Brazil through the United States and Mozambique, Soyalism reveals the enormous concentration of power on the hands of these Western and Chinese companies, putting hundreds of thousands of small producers out of business and permanently transforming entire landscapes.

Starting in the United States at the end of the 1970s, this system has been exported globally; from waste lagoons in North Carolina to soybean monoculture for animal feed in the Amazon rainforest, Soyalism shows how this process jeopardizes the social and environmental balance of the planet.

Screening as part of this year's Global Health Film Festival programme; followed by panel discussion with the film director and producer.
