Event Documentary Film Series: "Farmsteaders" (NR)

September 23, 2019 | 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Join us for our documentary film series on the fourth Monday of the month. Today we are partnering with the POV Community Network to screen the 2018 film "Farmsteaders" (NR) directed by Shaena Mallett at 2:30 pm.

Run time 59 minutes.

"Out of the ashes of a once-thriving farm community, 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," something that 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. "Farmsteaders" is a love story, a farm story, and a story of contemporary rural America. Clear-eyed and intimate, this moving documentary portrait - set in the verdant foothills of Ohio - is as much a study of place as it is a study of persistence."

This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. Learn more about POV here.
