Release of 'This Good Earth' documentary

21 January 2021

Starts: 19:00

Thursday 21 January    7.00

THIS GOOD EARTH provides a beautiful, emotional and unifying view into the relationship between political failure, and the long corporate food chain of power, the rise of obesity, non-communicative diseases and early deaths, the denial of basic human rights, species extinction, soil and landscape destruction and global warming.  

It’s a hard hitting story told by bakers, farmers, doctors, scientists, health officials and leading experts on food security, human rights and justice.

The 92 minute film is directed by Robert Golden, who writes

This film is an embrace of knowledge and of the earth, which holds something in common for many who suffer from a sense of loss of home and place. It is an embrace that holds within it, admiration, sweetness and a kind of love that allows us to lose ourselves in the splendour of other people and other living things.

We know what the barbarians are doing day-by-day, because we see the melting poles, the raging fires, the hungry children, the people who have salvaged only their memories from their washed away lives. We know the barbarians are now inside the castle’s keep, and that next the books and films will be burned because they are custodians of all that is fine within humanity, all that instructs, embraces and offers hope, and all that must be erased for the barbarians to increase their wealth and hold on their terrifying power for as long as this earth and we will allow.

This film is about the reality of global warming, impoverished diets and rising hunger, disease and deaths, and also about loving and conversely about insisting that the only way to maintain one’s dignity and humanity is to resist, but also to turn away from their impervious brutal order and to build a new and better alternative.

You can buy a 72 hour streaming licence for up to 19 people for £4.99
