UVM Institute for Agroecology Presents: Serán Las Dueñas de la Tierra

Serán Las Dueñas de la Tierra

April 15 @ 7:30 pm 10:00 pm

JOIN US for a film screening and panel discussion of Serán las dueñas de la tierra (Stewards of the Land), a documentary film by JuanMa Pagán Teitelbaum.

Synopsis: Before disaster hits, three Puerto Rican farmers give it all to grow food that is healthy for the people and the planet. Nothing can stop them. Almost.

Stephanie, Ian and Alfredo are landless ecological farmers striving to produce healthy food for local consumption in Puerto Rico. In this economically depressed US-territory -highly dependent on food imports and a frequent target for hurricanes– producing food locally is urgent. The documentary shows the protagonists’ grit as they attempt to carve a living without land ownership or capital.
