DIRECTOR: Ermanno OlmiItaly : 2009 : 78MINS : Italian, English : English subtitles"A warm lovely ode to the simple magnificence of a respectful, earth-bound lifestyle...Terra Madre beams with nothing but admiration for living well on this planet. (Mubi.com)
The slow food movement has built a growing number of adherents among those who believe that food should taste good, be sustainably grown and fairly traded. Among those followers is master Italian director Ermanno Olmi (The Tree of Wooden Clogs) who set out to film the 2008 Terra Madre conference in Turin. Terra Madre is a network of food communities that aim to foster discussion and introduce innovative concepts in the field of food, gastronomy, globalization, and economics. Olmi traces the influence of these ideas and practices from Italy to Northern India. The fascinating thing about this documentary is the way Olmi combines two different ways of coming to terms with this issue, making a transition from a tradition form of documentary to an imaginative contemplation of the way that our very way of life might be at stake.
To book TERRA MADRE on Saturday 5 March at 7pm at Mt Barker Wallis Cinema
