The Organic Life
Documentary Film "The Organic Life" - Casey BeckDocumentary filmmaker Casey Beck chronicles a full year — four seasons — in the life of an organic farmer in Sonoma, California and the financial insecurity, physical hardship, and rise of corporate agriculture that threaten the sustainability of small-scale, localized organic farming.
The Organic Life aims to move audiences to better understand the rigors involved as well as the delicious gratification, while also reducing our carbon footprint and mitigating individual impacts on the environment. The filmmaker is partnering with two local fresh food mobile apps on the market, “Locavore” from LocalDirt and “Dirty Dozen” from the Environmental Working Group. There are plans to develop a “living classroom” curriculum to go with the movie for local school children and adults.
