“For many thousands of years humans have used the huge variety of plants and animals of our environment as food, raw materials, medicines and as a source of inspiration for life. How does the modern diet compare to that of our ancestors, and do we need to re-evaluate how we eat nowadays? What can we learn from the evidence of how humans ate during our evolution? Does foraging have a place in modern society? What are the consequences of modern foods on our health and on the environment? ”

Join director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse.

The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough – the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.
