STEFANO PETRONI

Originally from Puglia in Southern Italy, Stefano Petroni studied filmmaking in New York and the UK, working on a number of independent projects. In 2016, Petroni and his brother Agostino decided to travel to Latin America to spend time living in rural indigenous communities to learn their techniques for preserving agricultural traditions while adapting to a changing world.

A young Italian activist visits ancient cultures in Latin America to learn how to stop the spread of agricultural destruction and in the process, his life is changed forever. The film is supported by Slow Food, Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford.
