Culture Cinema: Farmsteaders



Culture Cinema: Farmsteaders

Farmsteaders  59 minutes

Nick Nolan, his wife Celeste, and their young family are on a journey to resurrect his grandfather's dairy farm--fighting to keep this homeland from "drying up and blowing away," as has happened to about 4.7 million farms in the U.S. as the pressures of corporate-driven food have left deep scars in the region.  Nick and Celeste's meditations on life, legacy, and resistance offer an unexpected voice at a time when the country is so deeply divided. With much of the current rift falling along demographic lines, there is a deepening discussion about the rural white American.  And yet here they stand in contrast to all of our expectations--heroic, benign, accessible.

Join us for a community-engaging discussion following the screening.

This free event is a collaboration with POV on PBS.
