TERRA MADRE (Italy, 2009, 79 min.)

As part of the Food & Agriculture Film Series


TERRA MADRE (Italy, 2009, 79 min.)Washington, D.C. Premiere

Ermanno Olmi’s latest film begins in Torino, Italy, during the Terra Madre conference, coordinated by the Slow Food movement, where thousands of farmers and artisans from 150 countries exchanged ideas about sustainable, responsible agriculture, globalization and economics.

It moves on to visit an underground global seed vault in the Arctic, the Indian farm of eco-philosopher Vandana Shiva and the abandoned home of a hermitic Italian who practiced sustainability long before it was fashionable.

The wordless, lyrical final act follows a solitary farmer through seasons of cultivation and consumption (—2009 Telluride Film Festival). Directed by Ermanno Olmi. Premiered at the 2009 Berlinale.
