Winner: "Aus Liebe zum Überleben"
In this report we get to know eight people – organic farmers and food producers from Bavaria – who have visions they are realising for the benefit of wildlife, nature and the environment. The film takes us on a journey through their world and provides plenty of background knowledge on sustainable production of meat, dairy produce, vegetables, cereal crops and beer.
Producer and writer Bernd Verhaag has managed to deliver a film with a special sensitivity to the living environment of the organic farmers, which allows us to share in the thoughts and feelings of the protagonists. These are extraordinary Bavarians that we meet here. With them we experience their love of their animals, their respect for the land, and the realisation that fighting against nature is a losing battle. In his film, Verhaag lets all the characters speak for themselves, thus winning the hearts of the viewers. In this way, he invites us all to reflect on our own consumption habits. A film with a lasting impact for the love of survival!
