DREAMING OF A VETTER WORLD
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 16 • 7:00
POST-FILM DISCUSSION WITH FILM SUBJECT DAVID VETTER AND FILMMAKER BONNIE HAWTHORNE
Bonnie Hawthorne’s documentary features one visionary Nebraska farm family who understood that modern agriculture was ailing, and found a cure. From farmer’s son to soil scientist to missionary and back to farmer again, organic pioneer David Vetter has dedicated his life to a “ministry to the soil.” With camera and camper in tow, Hawthorne leaves her urban comforts in the rearview mirror to learn from the Vetters about what’s really going on in our food system. As interest in regenerating soil explodes worldwide, Hawthorne discovers that David Vetter is way ahead of the game. With both historical context and an eye to the future, Dreaming of a Vetter World shows it’s possible to jump off conventional agriculture’s pesticide treadmill. It’s also a story about love, hope and place; an inspiring example of perseverance and doing what you know is right–against all odds. (US 2018) 77 min.
