    For many, a bowl of rice is a simple trip to the supermarket. Rarely do we think about the production of our food. The documentary shows a typical day in the life of a rice farmer and the laborious process of rice farming. You can see how well-connected the whole system is and the number of parties involved in farming rice. The way in which the farmer gently treats his animals illustrates the importance of every single life and how it is part of a greater system.
From cultivation to sale the visuals give you a sense of the strenuous, manual and monotonous work in the rice paddies. Every action has an intention – the self-grown rice is used to feed the fishes, which will be caught and cooked for dinner. Every step and actor in the process is part of an efficient, self-sustaining system. The simplicity of the video appeals to your senses and gives the viewer a real understanding of these conditions. You are transported into another world by listening to the original sounds. Commentary or music are not necessary to complete the documentary. This is not only a video, it‘s an experience! camera: alexander baumgartner sound: isabelle baumgartner film editing: alexander baumgartner sound design: ferdinand feifel special thanks to: the family barque don bosco foundation for sustainable development gaspard weisheimer isabelle baumgartner haiggi baumgartner eckard grundmann

      Novella Carpenter started small, with some plants in an empty lot next to her house in Oakland. A couple of years later, she was tending to a full-blown farm, with goats, turkeys, ducks, pigs, and a robust garden. Her book, Farm City, details her experiences. As does this video, which tackles questions of neighborliness (which is more offensive: police sirens or roosters crowing?), environmental poisons (raised beds are key), and the all-important slaughter question. The answer: Yes, she does (and yes, there is some bloody footage).
