India: Auroville - From Utopia to Reality

India: Auroville - From Utopia to Reality

In Southern India there is a town where 2000 people hailing from 30 different countries are living up to their dream of a united human race. They believe that mankind has reached the threshold of a new consciousness, and are therefore turning their immediate environment into a laboratory where this dream can be fulfilled. After working the land for thirty years, the people here see the hard work has paid off: a barren land has been gradually replaced by lush forests, and the poor Tamil villages now contrast with fields with organic growth, schools, factories and futuristic residential areas. Every aspect of life has become a reason to experiment, giving rise to an abundance of ideas as well as solutions to problems. Success alternates with disappointments, yet the people of Auroville persevere: "We keep trying," they say, and their "lab-city," somewhere between utopia and reality, continues to grow. Co-produced by RTSI/Televisione Svizzera and AGUR. 2009 JSCA 52 min.
