Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Burkinabč Bounty, a documentary from Cultures of Resistance Films, chronicles agricultural resistance and the fight for food sovereignty in Burkina Faso—a small, landlocked country in West Africa. Showcasing activist farmers, students, artists, and leaders in the local Slow Food movement, the film looks at how the Burkinabč people are reclaiming their land and defending their traditions against the encroachment of corporate agriculture.

From women gaining economic independence by selling "dolo" beer to youth marching in the streets against companies like Monsanto to hip-hop musicians reviving the revolutionary spirit of Thomas Sankara, Burkinabč Bounty shows the creative tactics people are using to take back control of their food, seeds, and future.
