FAIR TRADE by Martine Bouquin & Jean Lefaux

As the planet gets richer, the Southern countries remain stuck in a vicious circle of poverty and exclusion from the global market. In this neo-liberal economy with its random market ups and downs, some people have decided to right the balance between producers and consumers, based on more people-friendly rules and values. ISLAND OF FLOWERS (IHLA DAS FLORES) by Jorge Furtado. This award-winning short from Brazil opens like a child’s economics lesson: “what is a tomato?”, “what is a man?”, “what is money?” Jorge Furtado uses comical cartoons to define each new word. The film follows the journey of a tomato as it is planted, harvested, packaged, discarded and finally ends up on the Ilha das Flores garbage dump. Farce then turns to caustic satire. The director brings us a film that is half documentary, half politico-poetic essay in which he presents a simple and straightforward breakdown of the mechanisms of globalization. It is funny, hard hitting and not to be missed. GLOBALIZATION: VIOLENCE OR DIALOGUE? by Patrice Barrat. Following the violence of Seattle and Genoa at the G8 Summit came 9/11 and its worldwide repercussions: the ideology of Good versus Evil and of the war between cultures, and the clash of religions all became part of the globalization movement. It is vital to look back at the beginning of this century since, although the quarrels between those for and against globalization are verbal, the conflicting views of “civil society” and “the powers that be” could well get the world caught up in a power struggle way over its head.
