A Farm For The Future is a documentary about a working farm in
Devon. The story is told by a lady who has inherited the family farm
and is learning about peak oil and the implications it has for modern
day farming methods. She explores the topic of peak oil and then looks
for examples of low energy farming and food production that use the
principles of permaculture (including a visit to an amazing food forest
We will also show some other related short films which are a surprise!
Information rating: High. Contains lots of
information about the challenges our country's food production industry
faces in the future as well as examples of successful low energy
farming methods based on permaculture.
Doom rating: Practically zero doom! Although the
documentary does a good job of describing the precarious and
unresilient position our agricultural system is in (the only moderate
doom in the whole film) it presents lots of solutions that are within
our grasp and inspiring examples that give you faith that a low energy
future is bright, better, and attainable.
Where: The Art House, 178 Above Bar Street, Southampton, SO14 7WD.
When: 7:30pm, Friday 14th May, 2010.
