edit to update results:
And the winner is:  Akira Kurosawa's Dersu Uzala!

Head on over to https://permies.com/wiki/189965/Movie-Dersu-Uzala-Akira-Kurosawa to watch the film (subtitles and dubbed versions available).  Don't forget to let us know what you thought of the film!  Did you like it?  How did you find it related to permaculture?  Did you throw tomatoes at the screen?  Inquiring minds want to know . . .

original message:


We missed last week.  Sheep and goats need extra attention, and we just couldn't get away for movie time.  

Thinking we may be able to pull it off this week - anyone wanna join?  We usually put it on at about 7 central, but you could theoretically watch it whenever.  

Let's vote on a movie via a little poor man's poll in the comments below, and then I'll update this thread with a link to the publicly available film of our choosing.  Click thumbs up for the one you wanna watch tonight.  (The best of the rest will be up for vote again in the weeks to come.)

Then comes the fun part - I'll post a link to the movie thread, so we can all watch it and talk about the movie!  Kinda like a book club, but one where you don't have to read.  (Except then you do have to read to participate in the discussion part on the forum, but I digress . . .)




Recent movie night movies include:

The Irish traditional crafts looks great, but it seems like the only way I can find the full length video is to order the 14 DVD set for 149 of some currency? Dollars? considering the reliability of the post around here we could schedule that for April 18th!
Same with Broken Limbs, it seems there's an free educational streaming option, but I still need to enter a credit card number even though the total is $0.00?
As for Eugenio Monesma my husband absolutely loves him so I've seen a lot of his stuff--in Spanish. The English language stuff seems to be mostly 30 minutes or less, but I'm game.

It is not that I have something against watching the videos above. But when I hear movie night I always think about movie Dersu Uzala.



I think it fits well to permies. It is about man who lives alone in the Siberian forests at the beginning of  20th century when he meets bunch of soldiers mapping the area. He lives and travels with them some time.

It is in original Russian with English subtitles. Directed by Akira Kurosawa in 1975.  

Here is imdb for more details.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071411

What I really like about the movie, you learn how to make a shelter fast so that you can survive Siberian windy night.  There are examples of other forgotten knowledge, which people used to know, but don't anymore.

I'd like to watch all of these.
Instead of voting, could we plan one each week for the next several weeks?

Click Thumbs Up if you wanna watch Lion (2016).

A TRUE story about how Google Earth and social media helped reunite a child - who fell asleep on a train only to end up adopted by a Tasmanian family - with his birth family 25 years later.

I got the wrong idea to start with: I'm good at that! I thought, until I actually read the post, that Permies was going to arrange the film and the poll was to find out which one to go for! Wouldn't work for me this time of the year, there's too much to do. Mid winter would be better!

I think what you describe sound correct to me - you vote for the film you wanna watch with a thumbs up or thumbs down.  Then later today, I'll post a link to the film that gets the most votes.

Dersu Uzala looks pretty interesting to me, count me in.  I didn't know there was a movie night.

I've never heard of this but definitely want to watch it!  Read some of the comments by others and, well, for sure I would like to watch it.  Makes me think of Anastasia from the Ringing Cedars--so far not a movie but only a book series

Thanks for suggesting this!  I probably can't watch it on Friday night with everyone.

For everyone who suggested we watch all of them - we'll forward the runners-up to subsequent movie nights for voting, so keep coming back and one day they'll probably get picked!

If I could throw one more suggestion for the future movie nights, it is  documentary "The architecture of mud" about the ancient building techniques in Yemen.  I saw it long time on youtube. Not to find it anymore on youtube.

I found it on this site https://www.architel.tv/architecture-of-mud

where is available for free and the web page has a pretty good description of the movie.

Dir. Caterina Borelli

Duration: 53 minutes
Production: 1999
Language: English (subtitles)

The Hadhramaut region in the south east of Yemen is well known for its mud brick architecture. Throughout the centuries, the population has developed very sophisticated building techniques and created a unique architectural environment. Spectacular structures such as ten-story mud brick tower houses rise up from the valley's floor. In interviews throughout the documentary, the masons describe their working techniques and the challenges they face with the introduction of new, imported building materials. The Architecture of Mud documents the vernacular architecture, the building craft and the society they belong to.
