Screening & Discussion: Family farmers facing 21st century threats

4pm See the exhibition Food Shelter Clothing
6:15pm Q&A with filmmaker Judith Lit
In the Périgord region of southwest France, a rural community grapples with a profound question: will this be the last generation of family farmers in a region continuously cultivated for over five thousand years?
“After Winter, Spring” is an intimate study of these French farmers as they struggle with that issue. Shot over four years, the film captures the daily lives of Nanou, Guy and other neighbors with deep roots in the Périgord. At their kitchen tables and in their fields, these family farmers communicate a profound attachment to the land. But the film’s characters also share their day-to-day challenges and their fears that small-scale operations such as theirs may be no match for the multitude of 21st century threats.
As part of the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft exhibition Food, Shelter, Clothing (on view from May 23 – September 6, 2015) MOVING UNITS: Where Food & Economy Converge is an event series organized by Daniel Tucker.
