Green Visions Film Series

Location: Gasteig München, Vortragssaal der Bibliothek, Rosenheimer Str. 5

"When everything collapses, plant your field of dreams," is the claim of both this film and the movement that has sprung from Detroit and other US cities in the "Rust Belt": the use of municipal and industrial wastelands for farming. Tied to this movement is renewed solidarity and and neighborly responsibility. The film is also an effort to create the vision of a post-industrial world.
