Life in Syntropy
a new voice around sustainable agriculture
Life Ub Syntropy creates verified content about Syntropic Farming and prodly add a new voice to the debate around sustainable agriculture. In 2006 it was the first time Felipe Pasini pointed a camera towards Ernst Gotsch. It was the first step to a long term partnership that is fruitful until today. The first result was the production of a short documentary called “On This Ground Everything Grows” – a huge success in the agroforestry cycles. In this moment, Life in Suntropy shares their deepest gratitude to the first companions in this audiovisual initiative: Mônica Soffiatti and Ilana Nina.
After that, Felipe and Ernst met several times in projects in the north of Brazil and in trainings for rural professionals in Latin America. At that time, Dayana Andrade was already onboard editing videos with Götsch’s explanations. The intimacy with the camera and the bonds tightened between those 3, led to the idea of documenting all the details of that special way of practicing agriculture. That’s how, in 2011, the Project Agenda Gotsch was born!
In 2015, with the support of “Fazenda da Toca” – where Ernst Gotsch had been developing large scale models of syntropic farming – Felipe and Dayana launched the short-documentary “Life in Syntropy” which was presented in COP 21 events in Paris. With Ernst’s support, Dayana and Felipe worked in direct partnership with the writers to compose 189 scenes that addressed agriculture and sustainability. It was also a year of great international projection: Spain, Hawaii, Martinique and Suriname were visited by Ernst and Felipe to setup projects and trainings.
