“Ciclovida: Lifecycle” with Filmmaker Matt Feinstein
October 15, 2011 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
The award-winning feature-length documentary Ciclovida: Lifecycle pedals alongside a group of small farmers from Brazil who bicycle more than 6,000 miles across the South American continent. They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land. Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers’ understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of mono-crops for making biofuel.
