We Belong to the Earth
The establishment of the first intentional communities stretches back over two millennia ago, with notable examples such as the ancient Greek commune based on vegetarianism and equality of the sexes founded by Pythagoras in the sixth century BCE. Set in the 40-year-old Welsh village of Tipi Valley, the film explores quotidian life in such a community, revealing the residents' reflections upon the surrounding world and questioning the community's future.
Folkekøkken - A Kitchen for the People
In ‘the world’s happiest country’ – Denmark, food waste is one of the biggest paradoxes causing social, environmental and moral issues. Very often supermarkets, restaurants and even independent farmers throw out food that is still perfectly edible, transforming the dumpsters into treasure chests for many curious. Folkekøkken – A Kitchen for the People depicts a group of young people, mainly international students who have created and maintained a weekly free, volunteer-based restaurant by collaborating with two farmers and a bakery that chose to donate their waste instead of throwing it away. The film captures the ephemeral community that is formed each week due to an ever-changing flow of participants, and reflects on the underlying values these people share.
