Diversidad: A Road Trip to Deconstruct Dinner

Directed by Jean-Marc Abela & Stefan Verna ∙ 2012 ∙ Canada ∙ 90'

From the waterfronts of Vancouver to the mountaintops of Mexico, DIVERSIDAD: A ROAD TRIP TO DECONSTRUCT DINNER lifts the veil of idealism around organic farming, depicting the challenges and hardships that face organic farmers. Canadian filmmakers Jean-Marc Abela and Stefan Verna discover that their perspective on the plight of undocumented farm workers isn’t quite what they had read about before they left home.

Following a group of young Canadians cycling to raise awareness, this sweeping road movie captures the urgent crises surrounding food security and farming in North America: from the economic impact of the World Trade Organization, to the ecological cost of mono-culture and big agribusiness, to the food deserts faced by inner-city families in the U.S.
