    Valentin Thurn is the guy who made “Taste the Waste” – a film about the question why so much food is thrown away on a daily basis. That film made a big splash, and some initiatives have been started in order to fight the waste.In this new film he wants to examine how we can feed 10 billion people: by GM food or by organic farming. He visits industrial-farming sites as well as small farms or co-operatives all over the world. Whether in Britain, the US or Africa, everywhere we can see some hopeful signs that farming on a small scale and in a sustainable way is well possible and able to feed a growing world population.For lovers of genetic engineering, big companies like Monsanto or died-in-the-wool capitalists this will be an unpalatable fact. If you already shop in your little organic supermarket next door and maybe even eat just vegetarian or vegan food, you will like this film and agree with Valentin Thurn’s line of argumentation. For all of us, the film provides ample food for thought.
