The history of the economy as it relates to that of peasant farmers and agriculture was presented through different genres:
- Conferences and debates on subjects such as: the history of innovation and change in farming, major farming crises, farm work, farming in war time, farming and sustainable development, and the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and globalisation
- A “history café” focusing on the theme “Peasant farmers and the black market”
Costa-Gravas’ new film, “Le Capital”, was premiered in the presence of its director.
The festival was open to all and free of charge.
