GARDNER, KS AUGUST 1, 2015 – Come see a unique view of the next generation’s family farm through the lens of Academy Award®-winning filmmaker James Moll. Farmland, a feature length documentary, takes the viewer inside the world of farming for a first-hand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers in their twenties.
Many Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat, yet are increasingly passionate about understanding where their food comes from. Through the personal stories of these farmers and ranchers, viewers learn about their high-risk/high-reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
Johnson County Farm Bureau Association is providing the opportunity for everyone to see the film at Cornerstone Park, 215 N. Center St. in Gardner, KS. Join us for entertainment and FREE popcorn!
Produced by Moll’s Allentown Productions, Farmland received notable attention during its theatrical run securing reviews in several national mediums and recognition in film festivals across the country, including Atlanta, Cleveland and Newport Beach, Calif. The film also earned a 92 percent audience rating on RottenTomatoes.com.
