ABOUT THE FILM

Before contact, the beautiful Hawaiian Islands fed their considerable population with farming methods adapted to local conditions. Now, the islands are the biggest global site for year round open air field testing of restricted pesticides, with widespread health consequences. Island Earth introduces us to islanders fighting big agribusiness as well as those working for food security through local farming and reconnection to the wisdom of traditional and sustainable agricultural practices. This film is a doorway into food production on an island far from ours, with different challenges, but still filled with an island spirit that we easily recognize.
