jurasco—The Cinematheque

This one man show by a 4th generation farmer, starts with some reflections on language and how it affects our perceptions as well as the magic of seeds. He then goes into some of the history of pesticides, insecticides, and other supposedly “safe” chemicals and how they were pushed by corporations in the 60’s to improve agriculture. Other topics include GMOs, gene modification using CRISPR, the influence of money on agriculture and society.

He is very passionate about all these topics and hopes to help people realize the dangers these issues pose to society and how we need to restore our connection with the Earth and respect nature.
