Land Grabbing


The world’s farmland is at risk. Demand for land has soared as investors look for places to grow food for export, grow crops for biofuels or simply buy up land for profit. The film gives an inside look into the world of investors in the international agro-business and how the politics of the European Union is involved. Land Grabbing doesn’t only happen in Asia and Africa, but also in Romania, which has become known as “Europe’s breadbasket”. LAND GRABBING takes a closer look at what’s happening to land and agriculture in Europe, whilst also challenging investors and their practices.

  • Welt
    "Tells it's story through impressive imagery"
