Michael Schmidt: Organic Hero or Bioterrorist, produced in 2008, details a year in the life of a Canadian activist farmer whose dairy farm was raided by 25 armed officers.
It tells the story of raw organic milk in Canada and the right of informed consumers to choose and procure the food they eat, directly from farmers they trust. The film had its world premiere at the Slow Food on Film Festival, Bologna, Italy, May, 2008
