Talk: Symphony of the Soil: Environmental Documentary Practice with Deborah Koons Garcia

The Sanctuary for Independent Media, 3361 6th Ave., Troy

May 16, 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Ms. Garcia directed the groundbreaking film, The Future of Food (2004), which examines the alarming issues surrounding the rapidly increasing corporate domination of our food supply.  It is the first major film to cover the history and technology of genetic engineering and the complex implications of releasing such crops into the food environment and food supply.  The Future of Food helped jumpstart what is now called the food movement and continues to play widely all over the world.   Her latest film currently in wide release, Symphony of the Soil, was designated a Critics’ Pick by the New York Times and was shown at the United Nations in New York City on World Soil Day which launched the UN International Year of the Soils.  http://www.symphonyofthesoil.com
