One Day in Tamera (2016) (trailer)


This short documentary is about the self sustaining community of Tamera, Portugal. In the film we speak with the residents of the community, who tell us how they made that originally dry land available for living, how they started organic agriculture, how they use biogas and solar energy and under what rules their community exists.

We recommend this film to everyone who searches for alternative lifestyles, besides the consuming, urban society. Tamera is a great example to follow for those who want to create and develop self sustaining communities.
