Join the Consulate of Venezuela in Boston and the Bolivarian Circle
"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." for a special screening of Growing
Change, a documentary by Simon Cunich, about community-‐led revolution
for a just food system in Venezuela.

Come learn how Venezuela is building a new food system from the ground
up through powerful and inspiring footage and commentary straight from
the heart of Venezuela’s food revolution. Featuring Venezuelan
farmers, fishers, and community leaders plus leading figures in the
global food movement.

The film will be followed by first-hand reports from William Camacaro,
a Venezuelan-born radio host and a long time social justice activist
in New York City, who organizes food sovereignty delegations to
Venezuela.

About the film: Growing Change is an inspiring new documentary that
looks at one of the most exciting experiments in the world to grow a
fair and sustainable food system. In Venezuela, from fishing villages
to cacao plantations to urban gardens, a growing social movement is
showing what’s possible when communities, not corporations, start to
take control of food.
