Film Synopsis: Soyalism

Director: Enrico Parenti, Stefano Liberti | Countries of production: Italy | Year: 2018 | Length: 65 min
Language: English | Age: 12+ years

Food production has increasingly become huge business for a handful of giant corporations. How do we re-prioritise workers’ rights, animal welfare and environmental sustainability?

Through interviews with workers from China, Brazil, the US and Mozambique, Soyalism lays bare the many land rights and labour rights violations at the heart of the pork industry. It offers an incisive overview of a deliberately complex system – and the ecological and social ramifications of such enormous concentration of power in the hands of Western and Chinese companies.

Soyalism also provides an eye-opening and urgent reminder of the crucial role workers, consumers and campaigners, wherever they are, can play in solidarity with communities across the world, who are fighting to protect their rights.



Beyond the Screen

Join us after the film as we dream up a food system that respects people and planet. We will be joined by guests including Tara McCarthy (International Officer, UNISON City of Edinburgh).

The screening will be preceded by a meal (included in the ticket price) cooked by Slow Food Edinburgh.
