The film is an enthusiastic documentary on farmers- and community-led responses to food insecurity in a scenario of climate change and peak oil.
Different ‘voices from the Transition’ are covered in this inspiring documentary: from organic, decentralised, community-supporting agriculture in Cuba; to agroforestry (edible forests) projects in France; to the Transition Towns movement in the UK. The film tell us of a future society where our deserts will once again be living soil, where fields will be introduced into our cities, and where independence from oil will help us to live a richer, more fulfilling life.
