ONE MAN, ONE COW, ONE PLANET
Thursday, February 25 at 7:30pm

Guest Speaker: Steve Storch, Biodynamic Teacher & Farmer

One Man, One Cow, One Planet follows 78- year old Peter Proctor, who some
call the modern Gandhi, as he exposes globalization and the mantra of infinite
growth in a finite world for what it really is: an environmental and human disaster
$9 Members / $12 Public (Includes Reception)

Peter Proctor is 78. He has a glass eye, is partially deaf, and has left the
comforts of life in suburban New Zealand to live and work in India. He
is also quietly determined to save the world. Peter is New Zealands father of
modern biodynamic farming, an arcane and extreme form of agriculture.
Detractors have been known to call it a new age scam. But across India
thousands of subsistence farmers disagree. Biodynamic agriculture is changing
the landscape, releasing entire communities from the debt cycles and
destroyed soils of chemical farming and the bio colonialism of multinational
corporations. One Man, One Cow, One Planet explores the hidden battle of
marginal farmers to own seeds, to grow diverse crops, to feed themselves
and their communities. This film reveals how precarious our existence on
this planet is, how flawed the mantra of unlimited growth in a finite world
and the reality of what happens to people when we treat them as means of production. One Man, One Cow, One Planet puts the selfsufficient
village, free of external market forces, at the centre of the universe and reveals that when multinational corporations dictate
what farmers must grow they are controlling what all of us eat. (New Zealand, 2007, 56 min.; Dir. Thomas Burstyn)
