Presentation /
Solitude Farm
11:30 AM

Dear Friends,

Join us every Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm as we explore Solitude farm and the three steps on our road back to Nature. Experience the farm with Krishna as your guide as he shares his understanding of 25 years having started Solitude Farm and studying with Masanobu Fukuoka.

For more information, please contact Krishna - 984 331 2960 & krishnamckenzie@auroville.org.in

-----

Solitude was started in 1996 by a group of young Aurovillians. One of them, Krishna Mckenzie, inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka developed the farm with the ideas of Natural farming and permaculture.

Much like the rest of Auroville, the land needed tending and care. Fukuoka advocated that all the bio-resources around us, such as leaves, weeds, branches, etc., should constantly be returned to the soil to increase soil fertility. We have come to understand, over the years, that a healthy soil is Mother Earth, and through a deepening of our relationship with Her, we now use over 130 different plants in the food we serve at the café.  

No pesticides or fertilizers have ever been used on the land. We practice non-tillage and no machines or tractors are used. Every part of this land is honored and respected.

Solitude Farm is a true example of Masanobu Fukuoka’s philosophy in practice – a road back to nature through eating local food.

« Soulages »

 

Film réalisé par Stéphane Berthomieux

 

Samedi 25 mai à 17h

Town Hall - Cinéma Paradiso

en français uniquement, durée: 52 mn

 

 

À 97 ans, du haut de ses 1,90m, Pierre Soulages est solide comme un roc. L’esprit alerte, la main toujours sûre, il est l’un des derniers mythes vivants de la peinture abstraite. Pour ce documentaire, Stéphane Berthomieux nous propose de vivre l’expérience de la lumière qui vient du noir en parvenant à conjuguer trois niveaux de récits : les archives, les témoignages mis en scène et les voix-off. Cette approche à la fois biographique et poétique nous permet de découvrir la place de Soulages dans l’art des XXe et XXIe siècles tout en prenant conscience de la modernité de sa peinture, de la puissance de son noir et de l’énergie qui s’en dégage.

Plusieurs personnalités s’associent au documentaire. Du linguiste Pierre Encrevé, spécialiste et ami depuis 40 ans de Pierre Soulages à l’astrophysicien Daniel Kunth, à l’assistant de Pierre Soulages Dan Mc Enroe, au philosophe Alain Badiou, au musicien Jean-Michel Jarre ou encore au recteur de la cathédrale de Rodez Jean-Luc Barrié, tous nous permettent d’approcher l’œuvre de Soulages sous un angle inédit, affirmant ainsi la contemporanéité évidente de cet artiste déjà légendaire.
