We thought we’d share this one with you as it looks pretty darn fine.
INHABIT is a film project by Costa Boustikaris and Emmett Brennan, based in the Northeastern regions of the United States. It’s a doco about permaculture and features many farmers, practitioners and designers that we think are awesomesauce.
From Emmett, the filmmaker:
“Disillusioned by a form of media that often slants towards the negative, Costa and I decided to film and present a story of solutions. As permaculture enthusiasts we recognized the importance of sharing the permi worldview.
We also recognized a need for more permi media that made a mainstream connection and that laid out the concepts in a universally digestible fashion.
So we set out on a journey through the states to capture some of the most inspiring projects and people around.
What resulted was a collection of over 20 visits with people who are changing the way that we relate to our food and economic systems. We also had the opportunity to speak with a couple of international permaculturists on tour in the States.
We travelled in a veggie oil, and solar powered VW, which became our on-road editing studio.”
There’s a kickstarter for the Inhabit project that you can get behind HERE if you like.
They’ve already met their goal, BUT we contributed anyway – partly because we know post-production of these things always, always goes way over budget.
And also because one of the rewards available is a DVD of the doco (hard copies still have a place, it’s true) plus a bunch of extended footage of some of the farm tours, like Mark Shepard’s New Forest Farm and Ben Falk’s setup at Whole Systems Design.
We can’t wait to see it!
