How to Save the World

(One Man, One Cow, One Planet)

56', 2007. Directed by Tom and Barbara Burstyn

The story of Peter Proctor, father of bio-dynamic agriculture, who attempts to counter the plague of transnational companies' single-crop agriculture in India.


How to Save the World tells the story of Peter Proctor, the father of biodynamic farming who, despite his advanced age, continues to work in India, where multinational firms are introducing transgenic products and single-crop methods. Helped by the local people, Proctor has not only succeeded in transforming the farmland and, thereby, the lives of whole communities, but he has also passed on his knowledge to native farmers, who resist the multinational firms' methods and the contaminated land they create.
