Think Global, Act Rural | France 2010

Ukraine, South America, India, France – farmers, scientists, producers of organic food present their views as well as successes of their work with earth, which is presented in second plan as a woman.

Earth as living ecosystem itself is compared to the soil sterilized and destroyed by pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, machine processing – where new crops grow only thanks to another doses of chemical stimulants.

In vicious circle, food becomes dependent on and controlled by oil & industry, food barely edible, while seeds – which should not be owned and marketed as such – are reduced to a few state-allowed modified species and sold.

The macho-hero approach of controlling, forcing and raping of the earth is becoming the subject of irony, criticism and appeal – in more layers – social, economic, agronomic.
