Raising Resistance – The Movie

Leave a comment

The documentary ‘Raising Resistance’ about the situation of smallholder farmers in Paraguay is touring through Germany. Directed by Bettina Borgfeld and David Bernet, the movie showcases the fight of the ‘campesinos’, the smallholder farmers of Paraguay, against the escalating aggressively expanding production of genetically modified soy in the country. On the basis of this conflict it describes the global impact that the use of most modern genetic engineering in the 21st century has on people and on nature; a parable about the suppression of life, about the diversity of plants and cultures, and about how resistance arises both in people and in nature.
