Why does our food system leave hundreds of millions of people hungry?

This documentary traces the resurgence of Venezuela’s once-strong agricultural sector with the goal of regaining the country’s food sovereignty through sustainable methods. Interviews with farmers working in cooperatives, fishermen who are benefiting from a ban on industrial trawling and cocoa producers who are now processing chocolate locally provide insights into a new, more equitable food system emerging in Venezuela.
