Crops and Robbers

27th October 2003

At a time when 500 million people do not get enough food to eat, the subject of world hunger is widely misunderstood.

This imaginative and thought-provoking film, made by the Leeds Animation Workshop, points out the connections between surplus and famine, and questions many assumptions about aid and trade.

Meanwhile, Yvonne, the young shop assistant, at work in a real everyday supermaket, demonstrates the links between past and present, internation and local events.

The three strands of the story come together when Yvonne's response to a famine appeal takes her round the world. Her trip offers a fresh insight into the use of food as a commodity and as a weapon - and into what we can do about it.
