“The Life & Legacy of Rudolph Steiner”

Written, Narrated & Directed by: Jonathan Stedall

Rudolph Steiner was a deep thinker of the 1900 turn of the century. He was the founder of Waldorf Schools, Biodynamic Agriculture, and Anthroposophic Medicine.  He believed in allowing children to enjoy their childhood while learning in a more natural way to think for themselves. He was a philosopher and scientist who wanted to bring science and spirituality together.  His approach to medicine was wholistic, and to agriculture as sustainable & organic. He encouraged planting a variety of plants which worked together to minimize insect infestation, planted north-south to maximize sunlight & harvested on certain days corresponding to heavenly influences, maximizing quality.  He was also an architect, playwright, and clairvoyant from a young boy … a true genius and Renaissance Man.

With our modern day stress levels, corporate agriculture, and climate change, Rudolph Steiner’s work is even more relevant today though he died almost 100 years ago.

“Being There” (1979)

A simple-minded gardener named Chance (Peter Sellers) has spent all his life in the Washington D.C. house of an old man. When the man dies, Chance is put out on the street with no knowledge of the world except what he has learned from television. After a run in with a limousine, he ends up a guest of a woman (Eve) and her husband Ben, an influential but sickly businessman. Now called Chauncey Gardner, Chance becomes friend and confidante to Ben, and an unlikely political insider.

This is the next to last film starring Sellers before he passed in 1980 and I would suggest his best … a great movie about flowing in life with a simple idea and a timeless statement about expectations.

Starring:

* Peter Sellers

* Shirley MacLaine

* Melvyn Douglas (Oscar for Best Supporting Actor)

* Jack Warden

* Richard Dysart

* Richard Basehart

* Ruth Attaway

* … and others

* Hal Ashby – Director

* Jerry Kosinski – Writer
