In Our Hands: A Documentary Series about People Regenerating Their Lives & The Earth (2020) (trailer)

2

‘In Our Hands’ / ‘En Nuestras Manos’ is a documentary series about a movement to restore ecological farming around the world. Filmmaker Matt Anderson (‘Fall and Winter’, 2013) traveled to over 40 farms and gardens in 7 countries to document the profound impact the GROW BIOINTENSIVE method of food raising has had on communities; from rural Kenya to the Sacred Valley in Peru.

This 9-part series focuses on a close-knit network of farmers and teachers who’ve been busy training others in this timeless way of growing food. GROW BIOINTENSIVE is composed of sustainable farming principles collected from the wisdom of mankind’s most successful civilizations. It uses few resources on very little land, requires no heavy machinery, no chemicals and generates its own compost while providing healthy, abundant food. This knowledge has passed from person to person, workshop after workshop and propelled a global open-source agricultural revolution which is now set to play a major role in mitigating climate change.

Come into the garden and uncover the fundamentals of growing a sustainable food system at a human scale. Meet these teachers who are inspiring farmers across the planet to regenerate not only their land, but also their lives. And empower yourself by learning the principles that will help you to grow your own food and turn scarcity into abundance.

The answers are beneath our feet. The future is in our hands.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 23 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, feel free to get in touch!
