Film: The Ants and the Grasshopper

Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village. Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real. Traveling from Malawi to California to the White House, she meets climate sceptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide, to schisms of race, class and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe they live on a different planet from everyone else. It will take all her skill and experience to help Americans recognize, and free themselves from, a logic that is already destroying the Earth. Presented in English with the option of viewing subtitles in Spanish.

Las hormigas y el saltamontes

Anita Chitaya tiene un don; ella puede ayudar a obtener alimentos abundantes de un suelo muerto, ella puede hacer que los hombres se peleen por la igualdad de género y ella puede terminar con el hambre infantil en su pueblo. Ahora, para salvar a su hogar del clima extremoso, ella se enfrenta a su más grande reto: el convencer a los americanos de que el cambio climático es real. Viajando desde Malawi a California a la Casa Blanca, ella se encuentra con escépticos del clima y agricultores desesperados. Su recorrido la lleva a través de todas las divisiones que forman a los Estados Unidos desde la división rural urbana, la separación de raza, clase y género, hasta la manera de pensar que les permite a los americanos creer que ellos viven en un planeta diferente al de los demás. Le tomará toda su habilidad y experiencia para ayudar a los americanos a reconocer y liberarse de sí mismos de una lógica que ya está destruyendo a la tierra. Esto se presentará en inglés con subtítulos en español.
