He runs the biodynamic farm with his wife, Rita, and from their farm, Thorshøjgaard, they distribute products to some of the best restaurants in the world.But not everyone is equally fond of Thorshøjgaard and their holistic methods.

    Bikes vs Cars

    BvC_Edit.jpg

    Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, Earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

    The Forecaster

    Sam_Colavita.jpg

    Can a computer model predict the world economy? Martin Armstrong, a former US-based trillion dollar financial advisor, developed a computer model based on the number pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points to incredible precision. In the early 80s he established his financial forecasting and advising company Princeton Economics. His forecasts were in great demand worldwide.

    As Armstrong's recognition grew, prominent New York bankers invited him to join "the club" to help them in market manipulation. Martin refused. Later that same year, 1999, the FBI stormed his offices, confiscated his computer model, and accused him of a $3 billion Ponzi scheme. Was it an attempt to silence him and prevent him from initiating a public discourse on the real Ponzi Scheme of debts that the world has been building up for decades?

    Armstrong predicts that a sovereign debt crisis will start to unfold on a global level after October 1st 2015 - a major pi turning point that his computer model forecasted many years ago.

    Greece: Days of Change

    Giorgos.jpg

    In a time of recession, three Greeks try to take control of their own destinies. Could this crisis give us an opportunity to re-invent ourselves and our society?

    We follow Giorgos in his search to find the strength to overcome his difficulties and put his life back together after he became homeless. We watch Grigoris move his family from the city in search of a better life. Lastly, we meet Ilias, an influential figure in the activist volunteer group behind the "potato movement" that challenges the commercial foods supply chain, practising solidarity and direct democracy, and making an impact on society as a whole.

    As the economic crisis deepens, Greece is at the forefront of change, and the initiatives implemented there could soon be seen in many other countries. Our protagonists are here to give us courage and strength.
