INDIA. If you have been there, just hearing the name of the country can evoke memories of the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells. Everywhere you turn, your senses are entertained. The food is spicy, the scents are intense, the colors are vivid, and hustle of the city streets can overwhelm and overstimulate. But if you embrace the chaos, India will find its way into your heart.
HumanKind is proud to once again sponsor a film in the annual San Luis Obispo International Film Festival. We were drawn to the short film, El Cacao, the story of an indigenous Panamanian farmer who grows cacao beans while he and his wife raise their numerous grandchildren. He faces many obstacles, including a devastating fungus that severely reduces his yield. This story lets us into a life most of us will never see, and it helps us confront how removed we are from the source of our foods and what it takes to bring them to market.
