Rural life in Cuba has settled down nicely. (Spoken in Spanish but with hard subs in English).

The Cuban Agroecology Movement

Enjoying a love of the land

A documentary about the Cuban agroecology movement -- its everyday life and characteristics. Portrays the daily work of peasants in the Escambray Mountains, Villa Clara, Cuba.

In these hills, agroecology emerged as a solution to the food crisis in the 'special period' after the fall of the socialist camp late last century.
Working the land organically and the pursuit of sustainability soon became a lifestyle choice, an alternative that has been germinating and today is paying off ... sprouting seeds under the sun of a new paradigm of life, which expand from a new awareness and flourish as alternatives and hopes.
Made by Collective Koman, Chiapas, 2014
