On February 20th, 2013 the United Nations launched the International Year of Quinoa. A highly nutritious pseudocereal grown primarily in Bolivia and Peru, it is believed that this complete protein could help eradicate world hunger.

Now trendy among health-conscious and gluten-free consumers in the U.S. and around the globe, growers in Bolivia, the world’s largest quinoa-exporting country, are experiencing the effects of the sudden popularity of their staple crop.

A colorful and controversial story, QuinoaSoup provides a rare look into the daily lives of Cecilia and Leocadio, a quinoa-farming couple of the indigenous Quechua and Aymara nations. 

Doors open for priority seating (Platinum, Gold, and Film Badges) at 12:00 pm.
Standby Seats will be released at 12:10 pm for $5 at the Brick Church.
Screening will begin promptly at 12:20 pm.
