In some countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, women represent 80% of the agricultural workforce, often producing only enough to feed their families. Yet they rarely own property, have less access to education or to aid and credit. If they had better working conditions and more recognition, they would be a much more influential force in the production of wealth. These invisible but essential links in the chain are a solution in their own right to feed the population of the coming decades, reduce famine and improve living conditions in developing countries. But who are these workers who work every day in the shadows, exercising a profession that is essential to life?
After five years working for French television as a camera assistant and cameraman, Marion GABORIT wanted to carry out a personal project that had been close to her heart for a long time. She spent a year traveling to ten countries to make her first film. She chose to tell the life of some women farmers around the world and to discover their stories thanks to the work of the land which occupies a primordial place in the world food production. She wanted to highlight some of these women, these invisible but essential links in the chain that ensure subsistence farming every day and everywhere in the world.
She wanted to use the professional experience she has gained over the past five years of filming to highlight these mothers of food. She realized that she had always been interested in this during her previous travels and had great admiration for those who help feed human beings by cultivating the land, sometimes in unsuspected conditions.
