A documentary film about the fascinating world of Rudolf Steiner and the fruits of his ideas



An independent project about Rudolf Steiner, his philosophy, his ideas, his love for life, for mankind and for nature. Filmed mainly in the region of Ticino, Switzerland, the film focuses on the fields of study where Steiner's ideas have been particularly fruitful: education, agriculture, medicine and sociotherapy.


A documentary suitable for anyone with an interest in life and in the nature of the human being. Seeds for the Future sheds a new light on the ideas and work of Steiner, considered by some as a visionary, by others as "the last philosopher", and by many still unknown or misunderstood. 


 Born in Austria in 1861, Rudolf Steiner has left humanity, through hundreds of conferences and books, a flood of invaluable insights and knowledge, some of which are already on the basis of initiatives in various fields. An artist, an educator, an extremely cultured, profound and mysterious man who has sown precious seeds in many directions, many of these still to germinate. 

 

Starting from the Ticino reality, Seeds for the Future briefly traces the life and ideals of Steiner to then delve into the ideas that underlie Anthroposophic Medicine, Sociotherapy, Biodynamic Agriculture and, above all, Waldorf Pedagogy, an educational method that Steiner himself hoped could be accessible to all humanity.

“Today, we have knowledge of many, many things and the relations among human beings have multiplied ad infinitum. But we live in cities that are like deafening factories in awful Babels, with nothing to remind us of our inner world. Our communion with this inner world is not through contemplation but through books. We have passed from intuition into intellectualism.”

Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility—these three forces are the very nerve of education.”

“Whoever seeks higher knowledge must create it for himself. He must instill it into his soul. It cannot be done by study; it can only be done through life. Whoever, therefore, wishes to become a student of higher knowledge must assiduously cultivate this inner life of devotion. Everywhere in his environment and his experiences he must seek motives of admiration and homage.”
