Earth Flix: Cinema 4 Change, screening our fifth film: Six Inches of Soil

Synopsis: "Six Inches of Soil" portrays the compelling narrative of young British farmers defying industrial agriculture by embracing regenerative practices. This documentary celebrates the potential of agroecology, fostering local food systems, fair remuneration for farmers, and resilience against climate change. Through the journeys of Anna Jackson, Adrienne Gordon, and Ben Thomas, we witness the transformative power of regenerative farming. Supported by seasoned mentors and a growing movement of advocates, they navigate challenges within a broken food system and degraded landscapes. The film delves into complex issues like food health, poverty, and land ownership, while illustrating the profound connection between farmers, the land, and their communities.

Have a look at the trailer below.

Short doc - Thankful for Soil: We will also screen a wonderful short documentary called Thankful for Soil. This was filmed and produced by the talented duo of NViro Media who are a local documentary production group. It adds to Six inches of soil by inserting the local farming elements into the event. This short documentary features Australian farmers who place extreme importance on the microbiome beneath the surface and shows the positive impacts this can have for a farmer. 

Please see trailer below.

Discussion: Alongside the screening, we're excited to host special guests deeply involved in regenerative and sustainable farming practices. We're honored to have Phil Lavers from Moonacres, a regenerative and organic farm located in Robertson. Phil is not only a dedicated environmentalist but also a resourceful and passionate educator committed to advancing better farming methods. Joining him is Cressida Cains from Pecora Dairy, who will share insights into environmentally friendly cheese-making practices. Their approach not only respects the land but also ensures sustainability by generating more energy on-site than they consume. And John Mauger from Maugers Meat who will talk about their farming practices and how they produce ethical and sustainable meat.

We hope to see you at our screening on Wednesday 15 May at 6.00 pm.
