Special Prize of the John Templeton Foundation, Nyon 2006

The Interreligious Jury awarded its Special John Templeton Prize for a film on Science and Religion, endowed with CHF 5’000 by the John Templeton Foundation, to the film in the section “Tendances” "Our Daily Bread/Unser täglich Brot" by Nikolaus Geyrhalter. 

Showing the advanced use of technology to produce foodstuffs economically, this film brings us face to face with the exploitation of Creation and our relationship to the earth and its resources. Using images alone, the film opens up the possibility of an unending dialogue related to the industrial use of scientific progress, a lost paradise, and the need four our daily bread.
