      If current trends continue, global food crises will become more frequent
      and more severe. Today's food systems already leave hundreds of millions
      of people in hunger and are rapidly depleting the soil fertility on
      which long-term food security depends. Add to this mix the convergence
      of climate change and peak oil and it's clear we need major changes to
      the way food is produced and distributed.

      /Growing Change/ is a documentary that looks at one of the most
      exciting experiments in the world to turn this around - efforts to grow
      a more 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 people, not corporations, start
      to take control of food.
