NON VIOLENCE FILM FESTIVAL 1-5 MAY 2017 PROGRAM, PEACE STUDIES - UNE

 

 THE WORM IS TURNING, 2015 (103 minutes) 

This is the story of how corporate agribusiness is taking over the world’s food production revealed through historical archival footage, and shows how this system is destroying people’s health, economies and the ecology of the world. 

Filmed on location in India, USA, Thailand, Indonesia and Australia THE WORM IS TURNING shows, through amazing examples of ecological farming, that in fact small ecological farms are more productive, they can feed more people better, and at the same time restore the environment. Young farmers are leading the way in many of these initiatives. 

 All films are FREE and begin at 1 pm. This is a School of Humanities initiative. With a focus on youth, this year’s festival is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss important issues facing the world today.
