The area was originally considered worthless by European-Australian settlers, who fenced it off and abandoned it. The town was established around the start of the 20th century by German immigrant settlers. Its population increased after the first and second World Wars due to the government's policies of subsidies to encourage settlement by veterans. The people of Rainbow have struggled to eke out an existence for more than three generations, with global economics and government policy compounding the difficulties of marginal farming. The film draws from home movies from the 1940s to portray the people in this town.

Kopple initially intended to make a film about Kenzie, Miners for Democracy and the attempt to unseat Tony Boyle. When miners at the Brookside Mine in Harlan County, Kentucky went on strike in June 1972, Kopple went there to film the strike against Duke Power Company which the UMWA had helped to organize. The strike proved a more interesting subject, so Kopple switched the focus of her film.

Strawberry Fields points out that strawberries grown in Gaza are the only agricultural product marketed internationally as being of Palestinian origin. One of the major Gaza strawberry farms in located at Beit Lahiya. More than 1,500 tons of strawberries are exported from Gaza to Europe through the Israeli company Agrexco. In order to get overseas, however, the fruits need to pass through the checkpoint that separates Israel and Gaza. The 2005–2006 growing season coincided with the Israel's disengagement from Gaza and the rise of Hamas as the ruling political entity. The armed conflict between Israel and Hamas resulted in the closing of the border checkpoint. The strawberries grown at Beit Lahiya cannot leave Gaza, resulting in significant losses for the farmers and their Agrexco partners. Unable to transport their produce, the farmers have no choice but to dispose of their crop and prepare for the following year’s growing season.

Avec We Feed the World, le documentariste Erwin Wagenhofer propose aux spectateurs un regard sur l'agriculture mondiale moderne. En passant par la Roumanie, l'Autriche, le Brésil, la France et l'Espagne, son enquête se focalise sur la manière dont est fabriqué ce qui arrive dans notre assiette. Il montre que la domination du Nord sur le Sud est prégnante. Comment est-il possible qu'en Afrique l'on achète des produits européens ou asiatiques comme le poulet thaïlandais ? Le réalisateur présente une face peu connue de la mondialisation : en achetant un poulet industriel, on contribue au défrichement de l'Amazonie car le Brésil déforeste pour cultiver le soja qui sert à nourrir les volailles élevées en batterie (90 % de la production de soja du Brésil est exportée). Le documentaire souligne également la différence entre industrie agroalimentaire et petite exploitation. We Feed the World adopte un style « coup de poing » visant à éveiller les consciences.
