    • Not a very Green Revolution


      from the source project Added 6,228 73 14

      We are now witnessing the beginning of the second Green Revolution in India. The Punjab in the north west of India was an experiment to test an oil based, chemically dependent, corporately controlled model. The land, the water and its inhabitants are now testament to a failed system. A system driven not by a desire to enhance an already sustainable system but to destroy it and replace it with one orientated around profit and plunder. The film is from an interview taken with Indian food policy analyst Devinder Sharma http://devinder-sharma.blogspot.com/ and the farming communities of Punjab. Produced by Chintan Gohil www.chintangohil.com Centre for Interdisciplinary Study http://www.cintdis.org/ Music by Alien Soap Opera, Second Wave

          from the source project Added 3,231 67 6

          This is an edited version of the original film http://vimeo.com/16508587. Natabar Sarangi is just one of a growing number of farmers throughout the world who realise that if we do not begin to repair the damage taking place to our agricultural systems and our environment, we will lose not just our cultural identity but our fundamental right to a truly sustainable system of food security. It's about a global phenomenon taking place where a non-sustainable system systematically destroys a sustainable one, where short term profit has the power to overwhelm common sense and the consciousness of many millions, where progress is not progress but the wanton destruction of an eco-system and environment we will never be able to replace. Natabar continues to find, save and share his indigenous rice seed with local farmers. To date he has managed to re-introduce over 350 varieties.

            Visit www.seedsoffreedom.info to watch the full film which is narrated by actor Jeremy Irons. Global agriculture has changed more in the past 50 years than in the previous 10,000. Nowhere is this conflict more poignant than in the story of seed. This is the trailer for the film Seeds of Freedom, to be launched in early 2012. The film explores the history of the corporate takeover of seed, and the impact that this is having on communities across the world. The loss of indigenous seed goes hand in hand with the loss of biodiversity, the loss of cultural traditions and practices, the loss of livelihoods and the loss of independence in agriculture. Please share this trailer far and wide. This film is co-produced by the African Biodiversity Network www.africanbiodiversity.org and The Gaia Foundation www.gaiafoundation.org With thanks to the contributions of Navdanya International www.navdanyainternational.it and the Source Project www.thesourcefilm.org/​ Camera: Jason Taylor, Jess Phillimore and Damian Prestidge Produced by Jess Phillimore

              Inspired by the food and farm traditions of the South, Fullsteam brews traditional and experimental beers with a Southern sensibility, often incorporating local farmed goods, heirloom grains, and seasonal botanicals. The craft beer scene is a big deal in North Carolina. With so many breweries out there trying to distinguish themselves from the rest—Fullsteam positions itself around the unique landscape of the south, putting all their efforts and attention into cultivating the region's native ingredients and sensibilities. We set out to explore their footprint in the craft brewing industry by gathering perspectives from local farming partners, brewers, and members of their community. They are clearly a company that understands the importance and value of people coming together—always pointing to and reminding their consumers of the deep agricultural significance and community aspect of their beer. – Directed by Remedy Shot & Edited by Remedy – Appearances by Sean Wilson, founder of http://fullsteam.ag Meredith Leight, farmer at http://granitespringsfarm.com Camper, bar manager at http://fullsteam.ag – Music Licensed by http://themusicbed.com – http://workbyremedy.co

                from Black Ticket Films Added

                What does a farmer do to a land that has died? He teams up with nature...and works a miracle! In the midst of the pitched debate around how genetically modified (GM) food crops are going to give the world its solution to the impending food crisis, 'It’s a Good Life' tells the story of how one farmer in India changed his fortunes by switching from chemical to organic agriculture. Breaking several myths around organic agriculture, 'It’s a Good Life' becomes a testimony of how sustainable agriculture can not only empower farming communities to grow safe and healthy food, but also ensure that our food security and diversity is not threatened.
