What does an environmentally friendly biodynamic food system capable of feeding everyone actually look like? This film is a blueprint for a post-industrial future. It takes you into the heart of the world’s most important renaissance.

The outcome of the battle for agricultural control in India may just dictate the future of the earth. Modern industrial agriculture is destroying the earth: Desertification, water scarcity, toxic cocktails of agricultural chemicals pervading our food chains, ocean ecosystem collapse, soil erosion and massive loss of soil fertility.

Our ecosystems ore overwhelmed. Humanity’s increasing demands are exceeding the Earth’s carrying capacity. A simple recipe to save the world? One old man and a bucket of cow-dung. Are you crazy?

Modern agriculture causes topsoil to be eroded at 3 million tons per hour. (that’s 26 billion tons a year) Human mass is replacing biomass and other species. The carrying capacity of the earth is almost spent. To maintain our comfort zone lifestyles we will soon need five earths to sustain us in the style to which we have become accustomed.

The mantra of free trade has failed the world’s poor. There is a better way. Biodynamic agriculture may be the only answer we have left.

    Bman,, easy there. The reason some have complained that the documentary was really short and they didn't get the entire movie is because they followed a link that stated: "Watch the entire documentary online FREE" and expecting the entire documentary, what they got was the trailer.

    This man and this video is the most inspiring I have seen for many years. Bless you all in your work. May you have the courage to continue this for all our sake. Many thanks, for showing the whole video on ShowcaseTV. I would like to other TV stations play this. It is in all our interest.

  • the disclaimer which should probably already be there**
    it'd be really great if you guys** could put a short one...
    sorry my mistakes

    sorry my mistakes

  • Oh..well...okay...thank you for that, and for the sincere apology (I appreciate that).  However, in that case...I'm not sure why you guys posted any of it in the first place then, but at the very least you could include a disclaimer in the video title or in the description pointing out that this is only a segment/clip of the full documentary, which is (as of yet anyway) unavailable for viewing for free over the internet (if you must post it/have it remain up on this site).

    In the mean time, I will let you guys know if I manage to find it on YouTube or Google Videos or something else which is free like that, and perhaps then you guys can post it as the full version instead (and remove the disclaimer which should already be there but isn't...it'd be really great if you could put a short one in the video title, such as "clip only" or something...but then put a slightly longer and more descriptive explanation, such as the one you just gave me, or like the one at the end of my last paragraph [beginning with "pointing out that..."], for the video description...that would be great if you guys could do that any time you post one that isn't the full program)

    Thanks!

  • Just like bman adequately pointed out, this isn't a documentary!  It looks like it's the beginning of One Man, One Cow, One Planet...but it's only 1:40 (one minute & forty seconds) long!  That is hardly a documentary, c'mon guys!

  • A trailer isn't a documentary.  C'mon DocWire ... Get With It!
