Film screening “Farm Rebellion”

The German documentary series “Farm Rebellion” (available exclusively on Disney+) illuminates the work on the Brandenburg farm “Gut&Bösel”, which can be imagined as a kind of “farm-future laboratory”. Over the years, the farmer Benedikt Bösel has gathered around him many young people who have specialized in sustainable agriculture and forestry, traveled around the globe and acquired knowledge from luminaries from Kenya, Brazil and other parts of the world. On the approximately 1,000 hectares of farmland and 2,000 hectares of forested land, the team has been experimenting for several years with a view to finding real solutions for sustainable and climate-neutral food production. The project is supported by funds from politics and research.

“Land use is by far the most important thing when it comes to us humans. It is always the solution for climate change, biodiversity, health, rural development and equal opportunities all over the world,” says Benedikt Bösel, farmer, agrarian economist and entrepreneur on Deutschlandfunk. Doris Dörrie had the idea for the show.

FILM WITHOUT BORDERS shows episode 2 of the series Disney+ Original Series.

In the run-up to the screening, Benedikt Bösel will discuss the future of agriculture with Ludolf von Maltzan, organic farmer and managing director of the Brodowin eco-village.
