Cultural Insurrection

A Manifesto for Arts, Agriculture, and Natural Wine

“[Nossiter’s] writing is always provocative and entertaining. An audacious manifesto that restores the broken bond between culture and agriculture and finds vital inspiration for contemporary filmmaking in the natural wine movement.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The filmmaker and essayist Jonathan Nossiter has issued a bold and passionate call for ‘a new cultural ecology.’ Natural winemakers, farmers, and artists become coequals in a restoration of humanism and intellectual life that begins in the humble soil. Providing inspiring portraits of artisans who are already pointing the way forward, Cultural Insurrection is a bracing proposal for anyone in despair about the stranglehold of corporatism and celebrity on our souls and the environmental degradation of our planet.” —Michael Greenberg, author of Hurry Down Sunshine

“What a firecracker of a book: a passionate, humane, wonderfully idiosyncratic call to arms that audaciously proposes the natural wine movement as a model for the insurrections our era so desperately needs, and succeeds brilliantly!” —James Lasdun, author of The Fall Guy

“A luminous, surprising essay.” —Le Figaro

“An ambitious, erudite, and sharp book…[Nossiter] make[s] inspired connections between…wine and film, agriculture and culture.” —L’Obs

“An invigorating read.” —Biodynamis
