Description
An octogenarian biodynamic farmer battles bureaucracy in his quest to preserve Danish Red dairy cattle and practice crop and animal husbandry in a manner that respects the earth and the animals’ primal instincts in this inspiring, good-looking, observational documentary. Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition, and the stubborn, hard working, articulate Niels Stokman is the movement’s prime practitioner in Denmark. Although Niels and his wife Rita Hansen raise some of the world’s finest consumable products, grown in harmony with the universe, and sourced by his country’s most prestigious restaurants, including NOMA and Restaurant Julian, his methods are not popular with the agricultural authorities. Director Ambo shows the hardships involved.
