Natural Systems and an Agricultural Philosophy in Punjab

The 9x9 Film Festival

The nine films featured in the '9x9 Film Festival'—created by The Source Project and presented here on Common Dreams in partnership with /The Rules project—have been made for one reason: to help people understand the reality of what’s really happening to the world’s food and farming systems, and why.

This is inspiring stuff. “We used to say, never sell your milk, and never sell your children. But that was before the Green Revolution. Nowadays, people sell everything.” But this farmer has turned completely away from the Green Revolution: “… the system of intensive chemical agriculture… a system of killing all other life, to aid the growth of a single plant. It’s like killing someone to feed another.” He buys no seeds or agro-chemicals in the marketplace, and is very successful.

Thanks Common Dreams for running this series of short movies about agroecology and natural farming!
