May 11th in Paris, screening-debate : What does the future hold for small growers in Africa ?

Through two documentaries, HRWB invites you to discover small growers' situation in differents African countries.

  • "Vivre dignement sa terre" ("To live with dignity of his land") : Around the birth of a sound and sustainable branch in Senegal, this movie makes us meet and hear some of the associated growers taking part to the project. Sharing their experience and their path, they demonstrate the interest of the use of agro-ecological techniques to answer the challenges the family agriculture in Senegal is facing today. If today ("Vivre dignement de sa terre"), living with dignity of his land seems unconceivable, yet it is the objective agro-ecology is pursuing. Film produced by Karfa Diallo.

  • "Et maintenant nos terres" ("And now our lands"): tells the story of three resistants to land grabbing in Africa, three peasantry heroes defending their lands and their way of life confronted to foreign investors. In Cameroon, Benin and Sénégal, producers refuse to give up their lands and fight for another type of agricultural development in Africa. A film by Benjamin Polle and Julien Le Net :
