Many documentaries before us have done an amazing job highlighting the problems we currently face on this planet. But focusing only on overwhelming environmental issues can feel paralyzing.
‘The Need To Grow’ acknowledges that there is no one magic solution, but we must look at the food industry as a holistic system!
We interviewed a lot of experts, but this is ultimately a story driven film. Following characters from several areas of our food ecosystem – inventors, CEOs, teachers, activists and urban farmers – we can observe the importance of interconnectedness amongst a myriad of solutions.
This isn’t your traditional documentary about urban agriculture or farming. As we searched the country for interesting solutions, our journeys took us to some pretty unexpected places! What we found exceeded our wildest expectations.
