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 with guest Pete Ritchie (Executive Director, Nourish Scotland).

The screening will be followed by a meal at The Project Café, cooked by Slow Food Glasgow, which will start at 20:30. Tickets for the meal are £15 and include a beer from Black Isle Brewery or a hot drink of your choice. If you have any dietary requirements please contact: Slowfoodglasgow@gmail.com

Tickets for the meal are limited due to venue capacity, and need to be booked in advance. Please secure your place by adding the “meal ticket” below to your film booking. 

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible we are introducing a “sliding scale” ticket policy at all our non-cinema venues: audiences choose what to pay based on personal circumstances, on a scale from £0 to £8.
