GOOD THINGS AWAIT
Norway | 2015 | Phie Ambo | 93 minutes
In this charming introduction to biodynamic farming, Good Things Await invites us into the Stokholm biodynamic farm in Thorshøjgaard, Denmark. Here, Niel Stokholm and his wife Rita, use holistic and traditional methods to produce delicious food sought by some of the best restaurants in the world.
But not everyone is equally fond of Thorshøjgaard and their holistic approach. Authorities and bureaucracy threaten to close down the farm. Director Phie Ambo follows their struggle to make sure they are not the last to do agriculture the way they do, but some of the first.
This festival favorite is aesthetically enthralling, and philosophically rich. Fans of cinema vérité documentary will be moved by its honest presentation, while enjoying the undeniable charisma and intelligence of Niels.
Join the conversation about our food systems with expert panellists and local food appreciators, and feast on tastings of mouthwatering food.
