Wine : The Green Revolution - Blu-ray
(82 min + 2 hours of Bonus)
La Clef des terroirs
From the vineyard to the corking of the bottle, making wine is a craft in which each detail counts. The world of wine has experienced early the sensation of losing contact with the earth. To get the best from the grapes, winemakers increasingly apply the practices of biodynamics. This method of biodynamic agriculture is to think in complex agricultural organizations in the presence of animals and cultures, in total harmony nature.

At the heart of Ganges Delta, hardly anyone ventures to the Silence Islands.
Yet, the forgotten people of the sundurbans archipelago still survive there. With limited ressources consisting of shrimps, rice and wild honey, they face malaria, tuberculosis, cyclones, wild beasts and indifference. Appalled by their distressing condition, one of them, Mohammed Abdul Wohab, gave everything up to take care of this cast-off community.
In South India, and particularly in Kerala, the origins of the christian communities date back to the evangelisation by the apostle Thomas
In South India, and particularly in Kerala, the origins of the christian communities date back to the evangelisation by the apostle Thomas, who, according to tradition, landed on the Malabar coast in 52 A.D.
Later, those communities were linked to the Church of the East ( also called the Nestorian church, and later the Chaldean church).
Having converted to the roman catholicism , they rebelled; from this time on, they split off into a number of groups: they divided into a roman catholic group and another group linked with the Syrian orthodox Church having Antiocha as the patriarchal headquarters.
Third episode « The Journey » is a 14½ hour documentary film by Peter Watkins, made between the years 1983 and 1985 on several continents, released on film in 1987 at the Toronto Film Festival. It is structured around the theme of nuclear weapons, military spending and poverty. Ordinary people are asked about their awareness of these issues.
It focuses on global political turmoil in the 1960s and '70s, particularly the rise of the New Left in France and the development of socialist movements in Latin America. Using the image of Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, the film's title evokes a dissonance between the promise of a global socialist revolution (the grin) with its actual nonexistence.
