“It’s a challenge to be in a world where our government can’t be depended on to protect us from an industrial food system that is actually making us sick.” — from “The Need to Grow,” Rosario Dawson’s award-winning documentary
An eight-year-old girl challenges the ethics of the Girl Scouts of America. A renegade farmer struggles to keep his land. An accomplished visionary inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.
There’s no shortage of challenges for those intent on feeding the world without destroying the planet.
But there are also solutions—and that’s what the makers of the documentary, “The Need to Grow,” focus on.
According to the film’s website:
“‘The Need To GROW’ delivers an epic story of solutions and the struggle to implement them. It will make you laugh, make you cry, give you chills, and inspire you to participate in the restoration of the Earth.”
According to the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences: “No human being on the planet should miss this film.”
