Film Screening Series: One Man, One Cow, One Planet (2007)

The first documentary in our spring 2015 film screening series focuses on the theme of “inner work for social change”, asks an important question: What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like?  

One Man, One Cow, One Planet (2007) is a blueprint for a post-industrial future. It takes you into the heart of the world’s most important renaissance. This spell-binding documentary exposes globalization and the mantra of infinite growth in a finite world for what it really is: an environmental and human disaster. But across India marginal farmers are fighting back. By reviving biodynamics, they are saving their poisoned lands and exposing the bio-colonialism of multinational corporations. One man, One cow, One planet tells their story through the teachings of Peter Proctor, New Zealand’s father of biodynamics, whom many are calling the new Gandhi.

Follow Peter Proctor along the back roads of rural India, and discover the miracle of organics and the farmers in India who are reclaiming their agricultural heritage.
