Couscous: Seeds of Dignity is the latest documentary by political activist, researcher and filmmaker Habib Ayeb. The film, which takes place in Tunisia, deals with the consequences of globalization and the commercialization of food production. It raises some critical questions about the way we consume food today. Habib Ayeb is also chairman of L'Observatoire de la Souveraineté Alimentaire et de l'Environnement (OSAE), a grassroots organization in Tunisia dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of food sovereignty, social justice and the protection of the environment, natural resources and biodiversity. On 22 March, Habib Ayeb will also receive an honorary doctorate from Ghent University. A link to the trailer of the film can be found here: https://vimeo.com/219816447.
