Join in the celebration and conversation about Rudolf Steiner and current activities. This new documentary film spans the globe with stories about initiatives from England, Germany, Sweden, and India, to Sacramento, San Francisco, and Sonoma County. Whether you are familiar with Dr. Steiner or just wondering, this documentary will surprise and challenge your view of the world and what is possible.

Produced by BBC filmmaker Jonathan Stedall, the film also highlights Steiner’s background and biography, including his youth in a small Croatian village. For Steiner, there was essentially only one world—part seemingly hidden, part revealed.

In addition to relating to Steiner's life, the film looks at some of the current work inspired by his insights—the Waldorf School movement, biodynamic agriculture, eurythmy, Camphill communities and Ruskin Mill, Weleda and the worldwide network of anthroposophical medical work.

At a Coffee House in Vienna a young executive, Philippa Belcredi comments on Dr. Steiner, “He wanted us to stand up for our own ideas... He didn’t want us to follow him; he wanted us to follow ourselves.”

At the Vidar Clinic in Sweden, Dr. Ursula Flatters speaks (in regard to Steiner’s contribution to medicine) about the importance attached to the biography of patients in relation to their illness. “We each have a story and sometimes that story is a secret story—even for the patient.”
