Aus Liebe zum Überleben

In his film "Aus Liebe zum Überleben", Bertram Verhaag embarked on a journey to eight courageous people who have turned their backs on conventions, agricultural poisons, inhumane ways of working and move towards an agriculture that manages without poisons and without destroying soil fertility.

Each of the shown protagonists tells his very personal story of fields for which one has to put on his best suit, of earthworms, cow horns, of silence, of happy pigs and of the reverence for life.
