About This Project

ENG:

The Price of Progress is the portrait of decision making of the Food Industry. What is more important and what is the price to get it.
Within the context of urgence that determines most of the debates around the next agriculture in the European Union, the film explores the intrigues, fears, emotions, political pressures and arguments of key players like corporate lobbies, politicians, renowned scientists and investigative journalists related to the international Food Industry.
What is at stake in Food dilemmas? Power, money or health?

CRO:

Cijena napretka portret je odlučivanja prehrambene industrije. Što je važnije i koja je cijena da biste ga dobili.
U kontekstu žurnosti koja određuje većinu rasprava oko sljedeće poljoprivrede u Europskoj uniji, film istražuje spletke, strahove, emocije, političke pritiske i argumente ključnih igrača poput korporativnih lobija, političara, uglednih znanstvenika i istraživačkih novinara vezanih za međunarodna prehrambena industrija.
U čemu je dilema o hrani? Snaga, novac ili zdravlje?

 

ABOUT the director :

VICTOR LUENGO Zaragoza, Spain 1973

I come from the field of Art. During 10 years I was represented by spanish gallery until I decided to migrate to the digital image and journalism. At the halfway stage I studied History and Anthropology. Then, I was fascinated by post-modernism theories which explain how Language shapes our everyday reality.

Since then, I have worked as journalist and filmmaker in South America, Cambodia, Madagascar and Spain. I was also editor of Magnum Spain, Seven and AFP, among others agencies. Now I earn my life in the field of Advertising working for very diverse clients and markets here in Spain.

The Price of Progress is my first film where somehow my professional career as photographer, journalist and filmmaker joins with the task of an emerging Anthropologist who is asking himself about the steps that our society are taking.
