AGROECOLOGY IN CUBA by JUAN PABLO LEPORE Argentina/2017/62 min

Cuban Agroecology was born as a response to the food crisis, based on the values of food selfsufficiency, education and popular intergenerational and multidisciplinary participation of the entire population. This movement today positions Cuba as a leader in the production of sustainable and ecological foods.

BIG BOYS GONE BANANAS! by FREDRIK GERTTEN Sweden/2012/87 min

A major corporation sees its brand defiled and reacts with full force. Dole sued Fredrik Gertten for his film, unleashing an arsenal of strongarm tactics, media control and PR spin. We follow the events, and a clear picture emerges of just what freedom of speech is up against.

BIKES VS CARS by FREDRIK GERTTEN Sweden/2015/90 min

The bicycle, an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the economic powers allow it? Climate change and never-ending gridlocks frustrate people more than ever. Instead of whining, people in cities around the world take on the bicycle as a Do It Yourself solution. Road rage and poor city planning creates daily death amongst the bicyclists. And now they demand safe lanes.

BLUE BREATH by RODRIGO AREIAS Portugal/2018/78 min

Crushed by a volcano against the ocean, Ribeira Quente is a fishing village in S. Miguel Island in the Azores facing the last days of a fishing activity as they know it. Everyone fights for normal days while life has to continue even with the fish’s scarcity due to climate change.

GUARDIANS OF THE EARTH by FILIP ANTONI MALINOWSKI Austria/2017/85 min

The Paris Agreement is a milestone in history influencing the next decades. For the first time 195 nations committed to take action against climate change. The film gives insight behind closed doors of the negotiations and reveals the clash of forces. A reflection of the global community told by high-ranking figures and leaks of the process. Can this agreement save our planet?

THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN by JULIA DAHR & KISILU MUSYA UK, Norway/2017/90 min

Five years ago Kisilu, a Kenyan farmer, started to use his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the damages of climate change. After a violent storm, we see him transform from a father, to a community leader and activist on the global stage.
