To Make A Farm (2012) asks: what might the future of local food and farming look like? This beautifully photographed documentary explores of the lives of five young people who without farming backgrounds embark on making their farming dreams a reality. Starting from scratch, they meet risks and challenges of this demanding profession with imagination, passion, and sacrifice. Intimate and beautifully photographed, this documentary offers a hopeful look at small-scale food production in an age of industrialized agriculture.
The Man Who Stopped the Desert (2010) tells the story of Yacouba Sawadogo, an African peasant farmer who has transformed the lives of thousands of people across the Sahel. His agroecology techniques and his name are synonymous with reversing the process of desertification. In fact, Yacouba has been described as single-handedly having had more impact on conservation than all the national and international researchers put together.
