Film Screening & Talk | The Green Lie

Wednesday Mar 20 2019     7:00 pm thru 9:00 pm

Location: Austrian Cultural Forum Washington  
The ACF Washington is excited to partner with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital and present the Austrian documentary The Green Lie by filmmaker Werner Boote at this year's festival, which will take place from March 14 to 24, 2019. The ACF Washington will present the film, followed by a panel discussion, on March 20, 2019.

The documentary The Green Lie searches for the truth behind the omnipresent buzz word "sustainability", looking critically at the business of and with "organic" food, so-called "green products", and how this label is utilized by some big cooperation for their own profit. The film addresses questions like the profiteering with "organic" products, food security and globalization, which will be further discussed by award-winning filmmaker Werner Boote, the Austrian organic food pioneer in Washington, DC, Nora Pouillon, and food and water program director for Food & Water Watch, Patty Lovera. The discussion will be moderated by Julian Lampietti, Manager for Global Agriculture at the World Bank.

The debate will be followed by a Q&A session and a reception.
