Directed by Shaena Mallett
With the agro-industrial complex and factory farming on the rise, the path from farm to table seems an inevitably impersonal affair. Not so for the Nolans, a young family struggling to resurrect their grandfather’s Ohio dairy farm in the midst of a contemporary landscape at odds with the plucky spirit and agonizing hardship of local farming. Espousing both the importance of sustainable farming as well its spiritual qualities, the Nolans’ world-weary philosophy on life, family and survival shines through in this timely portrait of an oft-misunderstood rural America.
