Farmland is a new feature length documentary by Academy Award-winning
filmmaker, James Moll.
Farmland offers viewers an intimate and firsthand glimpse into the lives of
six young farmers and ranchers across the U.S. chronicling their
high-risk-high-reward jobs, and their passion for a way of life that has
been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
“In Farmland, audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture,
but not from me, and not from a narrator,” Moll says about his film.
“They're from the mouths of the farmers and ranchers themselves.”
The film had its premiere at a private screening on April 17, during the
2014 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Additionally, Farmland has
been selected to be in competition this year at Cleveland International
Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival and the
Newport Beach Film Festival.
According to Mike Ernest, one of the owners of the Quaker Cinema, "we
thought audiences in and around Tuscarawas County would enjoy Farmland and
the focus that it puts upon both the joys and struggles of farming."
