Movie night: Il a plu sur le grand paysage

Il a plu sur le grand paysage Autumn 2010. In the region of Herve, in Belgium’s east, the milk crisis of 2009 struck brutally at the dairy farms. In this profoundly estabilised context, the decision of the European Union to completely remove the milk production quota in 2015, and the determination of the World Trade Organisation to further liberalise the markets, directly threatened the existence of the farms. Nine farmers tell us of their struggle, from the heart.

This evening is co-organised by: Movie-W, the Rural Sociology Chairgroup, the Sociology of Development and Change Chairgroup, ILEIA, RUW and Boerengroep. A question and answers session with the director Jean-Jacques Adrien and one of the farmers featured in the film will follow directly after the screening.
