Diversidad: A Road Trip to Deconstruct Dinner
Directed by Jean-Marc Abela and Stefan Verna ∙ 2012 ∙ Canada
From the waterfronts of Vancouver to the mountaintops of Mexico, this journey lifts the veil of idealism. They discover the challenges and hardships of organic farmers. They see that for a lot of inner city families do not have access to fresh food, let alone the land to grow their own. They realize that their point of view of the plight of the undocumented farm worker isn’t quite what they had read about before they left home. And they begin to realize that perhaps this journey wasn’t so much about what they had to share with the world, but more about what they had to learn from the world.
