  • Nordisk Premiär

Klassisk undersökande dokumentär avslöjar hur storföretagen hänsynslöst offrar miljön för att maximera produktionskedjan mellan sojaböna och fläsk.


Hur kan den växande fläskkonsumtionen i Kina förstöra regnskogen i Amazonas? Och varför lockas brasilianska bönder till Mozambique för att odla sojabönor som grisarna ska utfordras med? I Soyalism används intervjuer med nyckelpersoner – från drabbade småbönder till skrytsamma grisslakteri-chefer (”Vi klarar 600 grisar i timmen!), forskare och aktivister – och fyndiga animationer för att tydligt och klart blottlägga sambanden runt massindustrialiseringen av livsmedelsindustrin. Trots krisrapporter om eskalerande klimatförändring intensifieras några få maktfullkomliga företags styrning och förstörelse av världen, samtidigt som hundratusentals småproducenter slås ut.

Efter filmvisningen kommer det att hållas ett panelsamtal med regissörerna Enrico Parenti och Stefano Liberti, och Johanna Stål och Marion Bastos Lima.* Johanna Stål är chefredaktör för Camino Magazine och medlem i WIN WIN Award Juryn. Marion Bastos Lima är postdoktoral forskare på Chalmers Universitet med fokus på hållarbarhetspolicys för supply chain av biff och soja från Sydamerika.

*Gäller endast visningen 28/1.

Stefano Liberti is an award-winning journalist and filmmaker. He is a contributor to many European magazines, such as Internazionale, Le monde diplomatique, El Pais, Al Jazeera english. In 2008 he wrote the book “A sud di Lampedusa” (“South of Lampedusa”), which was awarded the “Indro Montenelli prize” for writing. In 2011 he wrote the book “Land grabbing. Journeys into the new colonialism”, translated into English, French, German, Spanish, Korean and Chinese. His latest book on the global food system “Lords of food”, has been released in October 2016. As a filmmaker, he directed many movies, both for the television and for the cinema, such as “The hell of child-wizards”, (2010), “Closed sea” (2012, co-directed with Andrea Segre) on migration through the Mediterranean and “Container 158” (2013, co-directed with Enrico Parenti) on the biggest Roma camp in Europe as well as many features for tv and radio.

The idea of the film starts from a question: what are the consequences of the global industrialized meat production system? Focusing on the supply chain of soybean and pork, the documentary aims to shed light on the exploitations and distortions that trouble the countries targeted by the new giants of food production. What does the future hold for these countries? Will they be able to maintain their food sovereignty, or will they become dominated by imports and sell off their land? These are the questions behind our documentary. We thought that the best way to achieve our goal was to investigate the whole system by correlating distant realities: China, Brazil, Mozambique, the United States. We have shown the thread of this mechanism that advances standardization and strips entire places from their vital resources, such as land and water. Our initial question has the ambition to become a question for the future: when the world's population is set to reach 9 billion by 2050 and more and more people are increasing their meat consumption patterns, hasn't this system altogether become unsustainable? The production of the documentary lasted three years, and the editing and tone was given mixing slow motion cinematography of our journey, interviews and computer graphics all blended with a musical score that enhances the drama of the stories we found around the world.
