FILM | Raising Resistance + Republic of Soya (Paraguay/Argentina) .26 April

Poisoned land, decimated forests and shattered livelihoods; local farmer Geronimo begins a revolt against the corporate monoculture of GM soy bean production tearing rural Paraguay apart. “The Earth is the factory of the poor man,” says Geronimo, as he laments the death of forest rich with bio-diversity that has been cleared to make room for the vast soy farms, much of which is used to fatten livestock to be consumed in Western Europe. Beautifully shot and passionately told, RAISING RESISTANCE poses the larger question of whether the global community wants to go on living with a system that allows one crop to prosper at the expense of all others.                                                                                                  .‘A sensitive and visually impressive survey of humans in a global hot spot’ (Eye For Film) ‘Beautifully shot and illuminating in its quest to bring this issue to our attention’ (Time Out London)
