A new film festival on African agriculture as key to ethical consumer decisions
Issued on: Modified:
As part of its inaugural film festival, Human Resources Without Borders (RHSF), a non-governmental organisation dedicated to tackling the issues of forced labour and child labour, showed two powerful movies that tell the story of West African agriculture. "Live with Dignity on your Land" by Famara Karfa Diallo, shows how Senegalese farmers rejected pesticides from multinationals in order to grow bio produce. Filmmakers Benjamin Polle and Julien Le Net spoke to grassroots activists throughout West Africa in their movie, "Now Our Lands" to show how people power can prevent land grabbing. Global Focus speaks to RHSF and Polle as well as other special guests at the Paris screening.
