"a heartfelt exploration of the power of stories to make change"

Jeremy Williams,,

EarthBound
An empowering and inspiring story of one woman’s mission to make the world a fairer place.
Documentary • Empowering • Inspiring
Part of Cinema Africa!

Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village. Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real.

Traveling from Malawi to California to the White House, she meets climate skeptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide, to schisms of race, class and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe we live on a different planet from everyone else. It will take all her skill and experience to persuade us that we’re all in this together.

This documentary, ten years in the making, weaves together the most urgent themes of our times: climate change, gender and racial inequality, the gaps between the rich and the poor, and the ideas that groups around the world have generated in order to save the planet.

This film screening is part of Leeds Africa Week events, funded by Univeristy of Leeds and in partnership with the University of Pretoria.
