Baden-Württemberg Premiere of "Our Soil is Our Heritage"

Home game for director Marc Uhlig, who lives in Karlsruhe: On Sunday, 4 October, his documentary "Our Soil is Our Heritage" celebrated its Baden-Württemberg premiere in Karlsruhe! He personally presented his committed cinema documentary on saving soil fertility in the sold-out Schauburg. Other special guests included author and Club of Rome Honorary President Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker and Mathias Forster from the Bio-Stiftung Schweiz, both of whom were also film protagonists. In the subsequent discussion with soil expert Bernward Geier, Weizsäcker emphasised: "I am glad that the film is now coming to the cinema. It makes it clear how important organic farming and soil culture have become for the survival of us in Germany and of humanity. I am very enthusiastic about it!"
