San Giorgio's Bitter Fruits
' If a man has his own home, even if it is only four walls and a roof; if he has regular work; and if he has enough to eat for himself and his family, he is not poor. Now tell me, who in this village lacks any one of these things? '
That is how Vittorino Cerigone , a Peasant farmer, talks about San Giorgio, a village that sleeps upon a mountainside in Calabria, that remotest of provinces in Italy's ' deep south'.
It is still assumed that this is a forgotten, neglected land whose destiny is controlled by faceless bureaucrats in Rome and multi-national companies in Turin; a land that people leave because of a brutalising poverty that has no Prospect of alleviation.
It is the proposition of Ralph Glasser , a Scots economist who has lived in San Giorgio, that such attitudes are no longer valid and People leave for reasons other than poverty; that the reasons are the same in Kenya, Bangladesh and Peru; and in misunderstanding these reasons we are in danger of losing many of the things we most value and desire.

Boston's one-time radical weekly, The Back Bay Mainline, is losing its excitement on the way to making a profit. The radical flavour and excitement is disappearing and big business is interested in a takeover. The effect is devastating for the young and dedicated journalists and hangers-on who have committed so much of their lives to the paper and to each other. This lively, very funny and often very moving film was one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the late 70s.
