"Celestial Mechanics"

Celestial Mechanics

This is the story of Jacques and Marion Granges, a couple of farmers and growers in Switzerland. The place where they live is 890m high and they farm their land with biodynamic agriculture that relies on two pillars. The first is the use of vegetable, mineral substances and animal that stimulate growth; the second is the use of forces, cosmic cycles and special attention to the lunar cycles and the influence of stars and rhythm of nature. Detached from the plain and civilization but not without being disconnected, they observe distant agitation of the world and maintain their land as their greatest asset.

In Celestial mechanics, I suggest a look at this mysterious planet where nature finds the power over man. The two magicians have not only been able to link science and conscience but also revive the lost slowness of our society, whether this slowness makes up the rhythm of life, in the wind, in the shadow of night, a new temporality beyond the passing of time over all that lives, naturally.
