“Food and Nature” Film Series: To Live For Food
The “Food and Nature” Film Series, organised by the Core Curriculum and General Education Office and CNEX, presented its first screening of an insightful Chinese documentary To Live For Food on 18 October, attracting over a hundred Lingnan students and staff to attend.
Capturing the lives of local organic farmers in Beijing, and how they are connected with consumers, the film reveals the reality of local organic farming against the huge farming industry of China. Prof Vincent LEUNG Sueh-Han, Associate Professor of Department of History moderated the post-screening discussion with two guest speakers, Mr CHOW Sze-Chung, farmer and co-founder of Sanwoodgoon and Prof GONG Haomin, Associate Professor of Department of Chinese.
Mr Chow shared his experience of developing an organic farm in Yuen Long from scratch, while Prof Gong touched upon the film director’s angle and his personal takes of the film. The question-and-answer session prompted students to raise questions about food safety as well as organic farming.
