    Film Synopsis:

    Showcasing the global trends in climate change, peak oil and rising food insecurity that are forcing us confront our industrial agriculture and its contradictions Voices of Transition presents a path to achieving a fair, environmentally sound and fulfilling human existence, where soil and man can support one another in a balanced and sustainable system. This inspiring documentary takes us to France, England and Cuba where communities are moving toward local resilience. Instead of succumbing to the crisis brought about by bleak global trends, these people are using the challenge to create a more cooperative, healthier and richer life. These “voices” tell us of a future society where our deserts will once again be living soil, where fields will be introduced into our cities and where independence from oil will help us to live a richer, more fulfilling life.
