Beyond Toxics & EEFF present "Abundant Land"

  • Bijou Art Cinemas 492 E. 13th Ave. Eugene, OR 97401 (map)

Beyond Toxics presents the documentary “Abundant Land,” is a one-hour film about a Hawaiian community on Moloka’i opposing the biotech industry’s use of the island to test genetically engineered seeds. Agrochemical biotech corporations, including Monsanto and Mycogen Seeds, are depleting Moloka’i’s topsoil and fresh water while contributing to dust storms that spread pesticides into the ocean and surrounding communities. Abundant Land also offers a historical look at the intrusion and political underpinnings of chemical-intensive farming in Hawaii while portraying the rich legacy of traditional Hawaiian land management and farming self-sufficiency.
