After a great start of the film festival in Kragujevac and the stops in Coimbra and Rijeka, our caravan arrives in Valencia. Here the crew from CSOA La Fusteria welcomed us and we are ready to start. We are showing the first of the seven movies today at 20:00.
We are opening our documentary film festival in Valencia tackling a topic of utmost importance with GMO the Debate (Bulgaria). In a time when lobbies of the multinational corporations are pushing ever more persistently by creating alliances and using all kinds of propagandistic tricks, when lay supporters of the opposing movements use ever more often unchecked facts and half-truths as argumentation, there is no better way to try to make people think with their own heads and value the facts as a movie that shows practical aspects of the ongoing debate.
GMO the Debate is the first of the three movies screened In Valencia today. We are presenting the movie in the section of the festival named Food Sovereignty. The other two movies of this category are Happy Without Money (Germany) and Food Anarchy (Slovenia). We are going to screen the movies in original language with subtitles in order to preserve the original flavour and rhythm.
The other dates of the Spanish edition of the documentary film festival are the 31st of May and the 3rd of June. People’sTrain of Culture (Chile/España), SUMUD (Palestina/España), In the City (Italia) and the special screening A Bordo! (Portugal/Spain) are the other movies that are waiting for you in El Cabanyal.
