we believe that the banana cultivation system needs to change. with your help, we want to use this film to show you why. our film is for every citizen or consumer who is curious about how our fruit makes it to our shelves.
now in post-production, we hope that our film will begin a conversation about the way we grow fruit, what this means for the farmers who feed us, and the ways in which we as consumers can drive changes in the food industry.
this film project
bananas in crisis
we want to plunge into the science underlying bananas’ oncoming extinction to show you how and why this agricultural system is threatened.
we want to focus on the future of bananas. how can we grow them in alternative, sustainable ways which promote biodiversity and protect our ecosystems?
we also want to give the farmers, industry innovators, and researchers trying to achieve this alternative banana future a platform to share their stories.
where can I find the film?
it doesn't exist yet! we need your help to raise the final funds required to turn our footage into a documentary. with your support we can open the next chapter in banana history.
our documentary team
our team was forged in February 2017, coming together whilst we studied for Masters degrees at Imperial College London.
we now work across leading research institutions and international NGOs. this is our passion project.
