Our Land - A 7 Part Series about Revolutionizing Our Relationship to Food & Land

5.0 ·
2

We have created this series of films to celebrate and interpret intervention, undertaken by individuals and communities, to shift our food and farm economy.  These episodes each address a major systemic failure of the old food economy: toxicity, monoculture, monopoly, inequity, exploitation, drought, vulnerability to climate change etc. Each of these characteristics of our current system makes it inadequate to our needs, but our critique counts for nothing if we do not act. Each film introduces us to the people who have identified a point of intervention, and have put their shoulder to the task.  It will likely take a generation-long commitment to rebuild a healthy, regional farm economy.

This is OUR LAND, and our future, it’s an opportunity:  let’s fight for it.

This series was produced by The Greenhorns, an unconventional organization devoted to agrarian cultural revival through community organizing, and grassroots media.  Please visit our site for radio, almanacs, anthologies, guidebooks, and much more!

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
