I just saw Queen of the Sun at the Pickford (I fear that tonight may have been the last screening).
--Vandana Shiva is at her best, talking about GMOS and their production (being quite clear regarding the mechanism of identifying the transgenic cells (via their antibiotic-resistant gene))….
--Jeffery Smith does us home girls and boys proud, again highlighting critical studies
--the long arm of summer reaches out again with the film’s interviews by Johannes Wirz – the molecular biologist at the Goetheanum who also is a beekeeper – and Slow Food’s Carlo Petrini; both of these gentlemen are featured in our summer class. Also, please note the highlighting of biodynamic in the film; Steiner is mentioned frequently. The Goetheanum also is shown.
