TO MAKE A FARM (Canada, 2011, 80 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere Here are people who have decided to put their money where their mouths are, turning their environmental idealism from theory into practice as they set out to establish their own local-supply food sources using sustainable means. We see trials, tribulations and triumph: livestock illness, soil irrigation catastrophe, social isolation and more, but at the end of the day, a strong sense of satisfaction and optimism. The film gets personal, too, giving us a close-range view of humanity along with a detailed portrayal of the nuts and bolts of agriculture. Directed by Steve Suderman. Edited by Jackie Dzuba.
