If you're among those who protest outside the WTO rounds, here's a little tomato for you. Hopefully you won't discover it's a lemon.
The Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, in association with the Hyderabad Film Club and the French Embassy in India, is screening a list of documentary films with the theme "Globalization: At The Heart Of The Exchange Of Ideas", from 23rd to 26th November, as part of the French Documentary Festival. Today, a 13-minute documentary called Island Of Flowers is being screened at Prasad's Preview Lab Theater. The documentary is directed by Patrice Barrat.
Globalization is at the heart of the concerns of leaders and citizens in most countries. It affects us in our everyday lives and forces us to think about the future in a new light. The films chosen reflect the state of the current public debate, in all its complexity, and on major emblematic issues.
The documentary is directed by Jorge Furtado, and follows the journey of a tomato as it is planted, harvested, packaged, discarded, and finally ends up in the Ilha das Flores garbage dump. Farce then turns to caustic satire.
