Five Hundred Film

Biodynamic Agriculture is a revolutionary form of chemical free farming that focusses on the health of the soil and its microbial activity which in turn benefits the environment and all parts of the farm eco-system.  Based on the work of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, it originated well before the era of modern organic and commercial agriculture, and has proven itself the world over with its remarkable results.

Diane Watkin, a Biodynamic Consultant, followed the story of Biodynamics in and around Sydney, interviewing a vast array of growers, farmers, restaurateurs, market stall holders, wine producers, school teachers, shop owners, butchers, bakers and health professionals.  FIVE HUNDRED the film portrays a lively and substantial industry based on Biodynamic farming. Interviewees in the film claim it holds real solutions to repairing the environment the world over.  The film also cites scientific studies that show extraordinary results on farms, gardens and smallholdings that employ this method.

ďIf we can choose the biodynamic methods it really creates amazing value to the food we eat, and itís great when youíre cooking something, when youíre serving something, you know you feel good about it, you know that the food has been treated correctly, itís been really cared for, that the earthís been cared for." (Georgio Pompeii, Pompeiiís Restaurant, Bondi Sydney from the film FIVE HUNDRED).

Three special screenings are being presented by Solferino Cinemas at the Old Katoomba Library on the weekend of the 25th and 26th February 2017, with filmmaker and Biodynamic Consultant Diane Watkin presenting a Q&A.
