One man, One cow, One planet exposes globalization and the mantra of infinite growth in a finite world for what it really is: an environmental and human disaster. But across India marginal farmers are fighting back. By reviving biodynamics an arcane form of agriculture, they are saving their poisoned lands and exposing the bio-colonialism of multinational corporations. One man, One cow, One planet tells their story through the teachings of an elderly New Zealander many are calling the new Gandhi. Written by Barbara Sumner-Burstyn

One Man, One Cow, One Story
6 January 2014 | by jzika-626-49507See all my reviews

"One Man, One Cow, One Planet" is the story about how one man can show the way forward.

If you love movies about the green and sustainable world, as I do, this movie is worth adding to your list. It's about solving the riddle of how to feed the world, in this case through biodynamic farming practices as demonstrated in India.

A basic understanding of both corporate agriculture and biodynamic farming will help you better appreciate the movie. Otherwise, you may not understand why farmers in India are setting themselves on fire, and biodynamic farming practices might be too challenging and perplexing for the typical Western mindset to take in.

On a broader level, this is a positive movie about a real person, doing real and important work, while gaining traction and a following.

This would be a good movie for a "green film series". To bring it down to the local level, look for biodynamic farmers at your local farmer's market.
