Cinema Politica Charlottetown, the UPEI Environmental Society & Sustainability Committee and the PEI Council of Canadians Chapter will host a screening of No Land No Food No Life on Sunday, January 14th at 6 pm.

The 2013 film explores sustainable small-scale agriculture and the call for an end to corporate global land grabs in Mali, Uganda and Cambodia. This feature length documentary gives voice to those directly affected by combining personal stories, and vérité footage of communities fighting to retain control of their land. The film alternates interviews with the farmers, the usurpers and other interested parties with scenes of demonstrations and conferences of a grassroots activist movement. Voice-over narration and animations create a historical context and highlight a distressing situation that exacerbates the food and climate crises. Facilitated discussion will follow the film screening. Donations are welcome. www.cinemapolitica.org
