Soil, Struggle and Justice – Agroecology in the Brazilian Landless Movement

This film examines a cooperative of the Brazilian Landless Movement (MST) in the South of Brazil, which struggled for access to land and then transitioned to ecological agriculture, or agroecology. This MST cooperative is demonstrating the possibility of an alternative model of flourishing rural life, which provides thriving livelihoods for farmers, produces high quality and low cost food for the region, and rehabilitates the earth.

  1. Hello! This documentary was amazing! I do however, have to questions:
    1. Can you give a direct link to the website the MST was using to connect with markets and whatnot? I’d like to give it a go!
    2. What’s the name of the song that plays at the end of the documentary, around 1:08:43? I’d love to listen to it and possibly download it. Thank you!!!
