TERRA MADRE directed by Ermanno Olmi, Italy
Friday, May 7 at 7:30pm
The Terra Madre (Mother Earth) conference is held in Turin, Italy attracting some 6000 delegates – activists and farmers from 153 nations to meet and exchange ideas, experience and plans for the future of food production and sustainability. Ermanno Olmi, now in his 70’s is free to reinvent the documentary form, which is exactly what happens in his new film, Terra Madre. Beginning with the conference itself, the film branches off into multiple narratives before the film gently settles on a remote Italian farm where something remarkable happens. A poem to beauty, food and the slow passage of time, Terra Madre is a ravishingly beautiful ode to the earth in all its fecundity and abundance.
