Great educational film for everyone
We have movie night 3-4 times during the winter months for our Master Gardeners. So this was great movie for us to watch and everyone enjoyed it very much.
I had streamed this one previously, but only saw the shorter version. I'm really glad I ordered the full documentary! The interview with Michael Pollan sold it for me, but I really liked seeing Nicolette Hahn Niman's (In Defense of Beef) visual explanation of her beginnings. The cover is a representation of the harsh future we could have, but the narrative is utterly heart-warming and hopeful.
Watched several times and learn something new each time. I so appreciate the solutions that are offered instead of just focusing on the problems. Bravo!
A genuine paradigm shift !
