Movie „Demoratisierung landwirtschaftlicher Forschung“ (Democratization of agricultural research)
Farmers and nomad from Perisa, Westafrica, India, Nepal and Andes came to us. They were proud of their own possessions, namely what you can sow and harvest to make a living. They were less interested in our high HP super technology. They could not understand that we buy certified seeds, breeding animals and fodder out of colourful catalogues. They were interested in the shared concerns how you can save agricultural values from the green revolution for the future? Democratization and agricultural research is our common goal. We intend to replace formulas from research and companies from the top (northern hemisphere) by a research with farmers and their regional experiences. Ground contact and food sovereignty instead of global market. Does the dignity of these shepherds and farmers from the South not demonstrate us the way out of our dependency? And a way in new communities?
