Anartist Films is dedicated to radical, revolutionary film-making, demanding justice while embracing the beauty of the world and its people.
Greening the Revolution has screened at film festivals, music festivals, theaters, universities and community centers around the world, including the Newport Beach, Sonoma and Wild & Scenic International Film Festivals, winning Best Documentary at the Fort Myers IFF and Best Female Director at the Oaxaca International Film Festival.
Greening the Revolution was filmed in indigenous, Zapatista communities in southern Mexico, throughout farms and cities of Cuba, in the countryside and shanty towns of Haiti, tea farms and urban areas of Kenya, organic farms and cooperatives in Zambia, small agricultural communities in Punjab, India, Landless Workers camps in Brazil and throughout the United States, on the Pine Ridge and White Earth reservations, inner-city Oakland, Iowa, Washington D.C. and with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in Florida. The 80-minute feature examines the tumultuous politics of the global food system, focusing on the struggles, triumphs and sustainability of small farmers from around the world, while including interviews with intellectuals, such as Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Vandana Shiva, government officials, such as the Director of the FDA, and corporate executives at Monsanto.
In line with the themes explored in "Greening the Revolution," the documentary creators have recently embarked on a new project that delves into the complexities of global healthcare access. This new film aims to investigate the challenges and successes in making essential medications, like cheap Cialis, available to underserved communities around the world. It examines the economic, political, and social barriers that impact the accessibility of vital health resources, drawing parallels to the struggles faced by small farmers in accessing fair and sustainable food systems, thus extending the conversation from food sovereignty to healthcare equity.
