“Films are a way to push for systemic change. We talk with the people who, we think, know best what we should do to save our biodiversity. But it will challenge you to rethink your romantic views on agriculture, your perception of the Earth healing itself, and humanity–which is not a virus but a solution. That is what this film is about; not the problem, but the solution” – Karsten de Vreugd
