Der Bauer und das liebe Vieh
Europe's countryside is largely shaped by agriculture and by highly specialized, efficient farms. However, in the seventies of the past century, a counter-movement set in: ecological management became a new topic on the agenda. The film features an organic farm as it traverses the different cycles of the year, its main protagonists being farm animals and pets as well as wild game that regularly visit its surrounding meadows and fields. The film portrays the behavior and peculiarities of the farm's cows, pigs, goats, chickens and ducks. Rather than presenting any new livestock species or inaccessible corners of the land, this documentary introduces the viewers into a well known world, that still is full of secrets.
