I watched the film two days ago and subsequently sent the link to my contacts via social media. It does a really nice job of tying things into a systematic whole without what agribiz might call histrionics. Beautifully shot and edited, though I might have liked a bit of an introduction rather than starting in medias res. I recommend anyone having anything to do with agriculture watch this film. I actually thought of the possibility of trying to integrate it into a school curricula ... which seems the logical place for it to fit is when they teach Earth science (for me that was eighth grade).

I realize today (12/12/14) is the last day to view it free, but it is at least as good as 80% of the DVDs anyone of us might buy to watch a film. And, the $20 is less than taking a date to see a movie in a theater if you buy a drink or a snack.

The film stated a case, proved its case and did so all in a very entertaining and beautiful manner. Two thumbs up!
