About this project
This mixed media project seeks to document and record stories of the people who are reshaping Cuban food production today.
We are a husband and wife documentary team raising funds to create a film about Cuba's farmers and gardeners, and the lessons they have to share with the world. Since the 1990s, Cuba has emerged as a worldwide leader in the advancement of sustainable agriculture and urban farming.
Fueled by our travel and research in Cuba, we feel passionate about sharing Cuba's experiences and innovations through this documentary project. This film will add momentum to the new wave of cross-cultural communication that seeks solutions to increase food security and inspire new models for sustainable development.
Your donations to this project, however big or small, will enable us to meet our financial needs for filming in Cuba this summer. This includes hiring an extra videographer, purchasing updated equipment and our on-island transportation expenses.
Thank you for your interest and support,
Pete and Kati
