Not a Very Green Revolution

The 9x9 Film Festival

The nine films featured in the '9x9 Film Festival'—created by The Source Project and presented here on Common Dreams in partnership with /The Rules project—have been made for one reason: to help people understand the reality of what’s really happening to the world’s food and farming systems, and why.

When my palm needs a trim, I place the trimmed fronds at the base of the plant. My neighbors place theirs at the curb for pickup and run to the big box for specialty fertilizer. I usually help myself to some of their curbed fronds to place around my palm. “Nature to be commanded, must first be understood.” (Francis Bacon)

These are nine well produced short sharp movies. Tightly focused on what we’re up against (agrochemical corporations and colonialist governments colluding to “own” life), and what we’re doing (growing a true living agroecological economy) to escape and replace the extractivist paradigm.
