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 countrywide 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 with

Fred Magdoff, Professor Emeritus (University of Vermont), frequent contributor to Monthly Review, a director of the Monthly Review Foundation, and co-editor of Agriculture and Food in Crisis.

William Camacaro, Venezuelan activist, co-founder and coordinator of the Alberto Lovera Bolivarian Circle of New York is an artist, radio host, and activist in New York City. He is also a contributor to Agriculture and Food in Crisis.

Organized with the Embassy of The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela
