To mark World Food Day, the United Nations invites you to “When Tomatoes Met Wagner”
In a dying farming village in central Greece, two cousins and five women decide to do things differently. With a little help from Wagner, Christopher Columbus and local myths, they cultivate an ancient tomato seed and enter the world market with their organic products. With humour and poetry, the film speaks to us about the power of human relationships, the ability to see life and the world differently and the importance of reinventing oneself during difficult times.
After a short introduction from Raschad Al-Khafaji, Director of FAO Liaison Office in Brussels, and Marianna Economou, film director, join us for a Q&A with:
- Marianna Economou – Director of ‘When Tomatoes met Wagner’
- Tassos Haniotis – Director European Commission, Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development
- Máximo Torero Cullen – FAO Chief Economist
- Dimitrios Fatouros (moderator) – United Nations Regional Information Centre
