Description
Organic wine makers in Italy have an uphill battle against an industry that favors chemically grown vintages. Director Jonathan Nossiter profiles four radical vineyard proprietors committed to making all-natural wines. What looks like a bucolic paradise, where intelligent people produce wine according to time-honoured and organic methods, is actually revealed to be a battleground. Through pointed interviews and casual conversations (one that includes film preservationist Gian Luca Farinelli), Natural Resistance unveils the passions, ideals and dreams at the heart of this small but mighty rebellion.
