Buena Vista film highlight, March 5th: AINA That Which Feeds Us.

The global story of AINA is told from the little Hawaiian island of Kauai, where two of the most extreme versions of agriculture on Earth are represented. On one side, is a traditional ecological system that has allowed Hawaiians to live in abundance for over a thousand years. On the other side, four of the worlds largest agro-chemical companies use the island to spray an estimated ten tons of pesticides every year on genetically modified test crops, poisoning the fragile island environment, local community, and ultimately the consumers of products made from this industrial model.
