‘Farmer’s Footprint’ is a documentary series as well as a grassroots movement. Over the last 20 years we have seen a dramatic change in the demographics of chronic disease in the US. The epicenter of these epidemics has become the southern states along the Mississippi River. Independent research from private and university laboratories around the world have begun to implicate glyphosate as a primary culprit. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the ubiquitous herbicide ‘Round Up’ that has infiltrated the majority of our food, water, air, and rainfall.
Our film series will address the science of glyphosate’s impact on human health, both through the lens of the medical findings from Dr. Zach Bush and through the human stories illuminating the health and economic impact on farmers and communities. In addition, we intend to highlight the intrepid individuals that are paving a path to a cleaner future for our water and our children while working away from chemical dependency and towards regenerative agriculture.
