Bittere Ernte

Le monde paysan en danger
Star rating: 4.5 of 6
2017 | 78 min | Recommended min. age: 16 y

“Bittere Ernte” focuses on a humanitarian catastrophe that affects around half of the world’s population, but hardly penetrates our consciousness: the situation of farmers who produce food but usually do not have enough themselves to feed themselves or – as is often the case here – fall into a debt trap that threatens their very existence.

The film investigates the causes of this misery and points out connections that point to our economic system, but also to Switzerland as the seat of important agrochemical companies and the hub of the food trade.
