Think Global : Eat Local is a celebration of local food systems in communities around the world - farmers markets, food box systems, food coops, community farms, community gardens and school gardens. The film touches on many of the issues caused by and impacting our current unsustainable food system and points to the relocalisation of food systems as a key strategy for working toward sustainability, social justice and well-being.
Morag and Evan have spent the past few months pulling together footage of local food projects that they have filmed and photographed both locally and internationally since 1992. Locations include: Cuba, Ladakh, Indonesia, Turkey, South Korea, Spain, The Bahamas, USA, Scotland, Denmark, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Germany, Hong Kong, and in Australia - Northey Street City Farm, Maleny and Crystal Waters. The film shows interviews with world-renowned scientist and author, Fritjof Capra, and well-know Brisbane-based food activist and academic, Kristen Lyons. Other interviews include Northey Street City Farm’s Organic Market coordinator - Anaheke Metua, CSA Farmer - Les Nichols, a local food chef, a naturopath, alongside input from Morag and Evan. T
