“Hungry” - Hilton LightStay Sustainability Award
Hungry (working title) documents the eroding biodiversity of our global food crops and the potentially dire consequences this will have for global agriculture in a new era of climate change. Pioneer Cary Fowler ardently tries to conserve crop diversity forever in gene banks around the globe. Meanwhile, a group of indigenous Peruvian farmers tries to save the vast diversity of the world's third most important crop: the potato. Disparate, and yet complimentary, the connections between these efforts may hold sustainable solutions to saving the very foundation of our global food supply.
