AUSTRIA – 2005 – 90 min – Documentary – Color – Multilingual

Close to one billion people are starving worldwide. But the food we are currently producing could feed 12 billion people.

This documentary takes us to France, Spain, Romania, Switzerland, Brazil and Austria. Those interviewed are not only the UN’s Jean Ziegler and corporate executives of the world’s largest food companies, but also struggling fishermen, farmers and livestock growers, the very people who put food on our plates. WE FEED THE WORLD lays bare a globalized food industry in which the constant pursuit of profit takes precedence over preserving livelihoods or sustaining natural resources.
