INHABIT

3 10 2014

A documentary film introducing Permaculture – designing a world where people and planet can thrive.  The trailer is inspiring and well worth watching, what will the full blown film be like?  Can’t wait…….

A Film About Permaculture?

Humanity is more than ever threatened by its own actions; we hear a lot about the need to minimize footprints and to reduce our impact. But what if our footprints were beneficial? What if we could meet human needs while increasing the health and well-being of our planet? This is the premise behind permaculture: a design process based on the replication of patterns found in nature.

Permaculture is a road map for the redesign of human systems. It calls for a culture that acts in harmony with the forces of nature and it says “let’s design an agriculture that increases the quality of life for all beings, and let’s achieve the same through our social, economic, and political systems.”

Inhabit is a feature length documentary introducing permaculture. It presents a vast array of projects, concepts, and people, and it translates the diversity of permaculture into something that can be understood by an equally diverse audience. For those familiar, it will be a call to action and a glimpse into what’s possible – what kind of projects and solutions are already underway. For those unfamiliar, it will be an introduction to a new way of being and a new way of relating to the Earth. For everyone, it will be a reminder that humans are capable of being planetary healing forces.

Focused mostly on the Northeastern and Midwestern regions of the United States, Inhabit provides an intimate look at permaculture peoples and practices. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2013, we documented over 20 sites in a range of rural, suburban, and urban environments. We explored a breadth of response to local and global challenges from issues of food, water, and medicine, to governance, economy, and culture.
