Film Synopsis: Soyalism
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 in the Belmont Filmhouse bar before the film (from 13:30) for a free buffet, freshly prepared by Slow Food Aberdeen with locally sourced ingredients (free admission with your cinema ticket) – and join us in discussion after the film, as we dream up a food system that respects people and planet.
Presented as part of TOAFF19 Aberdeen.
