Good Things Await
Niels Stokholm has been a biodynamic farmer in Denmark for over 30 years. He along with his wife Rita are profoundly connected to their land, the ebb and flow of each season, and the spiritual force of the earth and stars. All of this results in the world’s top restaurants (like Noma) knocking on the farm door to procure produce, meat, and cheese for their exclusive menus. However, Niels is also a repeat offender who balks against a bureaucratic system that doesn’t understand his kind of animal husbandry: living harmoniously with the Danish Red cattle he fights so hard to preserve.
Denmark, 2014, 90 minutes; Director Phie Ambo
In The Regent’s lobby, the Vic Café will be selling some of their delicious fare, and a wine bar will feature a variety of wines by the glass from Three Dog Winery.
