Description:
North Korea is one of the most secretive and remote locations on earth, visited by few Americans. In Jonathan Tetzlaff’s travels, he visited not only the capital, Pyongyang, but also remote locations in the central and northern portions of North Korea (along the border with China). Jonathan is one of the few Americans to view the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) – one of the most heavily-militarized borders in the world – from the northern side. Other destinations included Chongjin, for decades a city closed to all visitors. Opened only a short time before his trip, security in Chongin was very tight. Jonathan will discuss his travel, varied accommodations and unexpected experiences. Jonathan will also touch on tensions between the US and North Korea, recent advances in North Korean nuclear technology, and the regional and global consequences if war were to break out. This event requires no tickets or reservations and is open to the public. The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes with ample time for Q&A. If you have questions, please contact Jonathan Tetzlaff ([email protected]). Information is also available at: https://olliasheville.com/special-programs.

Description:
For the first time in a full-length documentary, contract farmers tell their stories, and industry experts reveal how the corporate production model pits farmer against farmer. Under Contract: Farmers and the Fine Print takes audiences across the American South and to Southern India to understand what’s happening to farmers living under contract and what we can do to change our food system for the better. The story of the contract farmer is the story of what’s changing in rural America. Power in agriculture is changing hands, but few people know what’s happening to the farmers producing our food. Under Contract tells this story through the lens of global poultry farming. In the U.S. alone, 97% of the chicken produced is raised by family farmers under contract with large companies. Around the world and all across agriculture, contract farming is taking hold. But farmers who sign contracts often face unfair challenges and hidden risks under the terms offered by large firms. Under Contract provides a timely glimpse into the little understood fine print of modern agriculture. Represenatives from the Rural Advancement Foundation International and MountainTrue's French Broad Riverkeeper will be on hand to answer questions after the film.
