Earth Pilgrim - Satish Kumar

This year Schumacher College and Resurgence is partnering with Emergence to make a six-hour in depth landmark documentary series about Satish Kumar. This series of films will represent an invaluable resource for years to come - a document, a legacy, a gift to inspire the change-makers of the future.

Emergence is an arts and social change collective based in Wales inspired into being as a result of being at Schumacher College and listening to Satish talk about 'emergence' as a way of life. Satish's passion, energy and conviction that individuals can change the world is powerful and infectious. Countless people have been inspired to create change in their own life and in the world after hearing him speak. We believe that Satish is one of the greatest visionaries and activists of the 21st century and we want to bring his teaching to a wider audience.

Never before has there been an in depth record of Satish's life, work and teaching that deeply interrogates all that he stands for.  Now entering his 79th year, he is at the peak of his powers and learning. In these films, he will be in dialogue with Jane Davidson, former Minister for Environment and Sustainability in Wales who will challenge Satish on ways of bringing his 'alternative' ideas firmly into the mainstream. 

These six hour-long films will be filmed over six days in summer 2015 and released in 2016 - Satish's 80th year.
