Oscar®-winning documentary filmmaker James Moll has unveiled an advance trailer and web site for his latest film, “Farmland,” which is now in post-production.
The feature-length documentary follows the next generation of American farmers and ranchers, examining the lives of farmers and ranchers in their 20s, in various regions across the US. The advance trailer and information about the film is now available at www.farmlandfilm.com.
“I make documentaries because it’s a thrill to explore new topics and meet people that I might not otherwise cross paths with,” said Moll. “While making “Farmland,” I found myself immersed in a community of some of the most hard working, passionate people I’ve ever met. This film isn’t just about what it’s like to be a farmer, it’s about a way of life. It’s also about a subject that affects our lives daily.”
The film web site offers some general background information about the film, full color photographs from the making of the documentary and the theatrical trailer.
The film, made with generous support from the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance® (USFRA®), gives viewers a firsthand look into the lives of these young farmers and ranchers, their high-risk/high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that, more often than not, is passed down from generation to generation.
“Farmland” is scheduled to open nationwide in spring 2014.
