A film by Alexander Baumgartner
As someone who eats rice 3x a day, not much thought goes into reflecting on where that rice comes from. This is a video of a typical day in a rice farmer's life in the southern Philippines. This is small scale (human scale) farming, in an ecosystem where very little goes to waste. The rice is grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides.
There are so many places in the Philippines similar in atmosphere and tranquility... in the quiet of the night, this is where my thoughts go to.
