Green Film Night

Hosted by Transition Town Wellington as part of Wellington Film Festival

Film: This Good Earth will be preceded by two short films also about food and sustainability:

Flying Over Fox’s Field by Jem McCluskey, Reflexeye Films

Eat up! Better living, less waste by Dan Edelstyn, Rapid Transition Alliance

This Good Earth is film-maker Robert Golden’s passionate warning about the dangers lurking in the way food is produced and processed in the modern world. Golden, who lives in Dorset, spent two years filming in the South West and interviewing dozens of farmers, smallholders, food growers, scientists and ecologists about the future of food in this country.

Described as “beautifully shot, hard-hitting and very compelling”, the film is a wake-up call for an urgent and radically different approach to food, farming and the soil in the modern world.

“As a tool to engage people and communities in thinking about food and farming in their local area, This Good Earth is a powerful and fascinating overview

that covers a lot of ground in a short time.”

– Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Town Movement

We are delighted that the director Robert Golden will be at the Wellington Film Festival screening to talk with the audience about the issues raised in the film. The discussion will be chaired by Anita Roy from Transition Town Wellington.
