Film Screening: After Winter, Spring

April 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Join us for this award-winning film, After Winter, Spring.
In the spirit of Earth Day, we focus on the plight and promises of small family farms, their farmers and communities. We strive to protect and foster them, and are grateful for the essential work they do to support the bioregions of Earth.
 AFTER WINTER, SPRING is an intimate portrait of a rural, rooted-in-nature way of life under threat in a world increasingly dominated by large-scale industrial agriculture.
In the Périgord region of southwest France, a rural community grapples with a profound question: will it be the last generation of family farmers in a region continuously cultivated for over five thousand years?The Périgordine farmers show us that as agriculture moves out of the hands of families who have farmed for generations and into a model of “agriculture as business,” something fundamental shifts. This farming community caught between tradition and an uncertain future struggles to hold on not only to their farms but to a set of values that comes of their intimate relationship with the natural world. AFTER WINTER, SPRING reveals the human story of family farming at a turning point in history.
