Board member and Nebraska farmer Lisa Lunz says the movie looks into the daily lives of six people from various parts of the country, including the Loberg family in Carroll, Nebraska.
“James Moll, who’s an Academy Award-winning director took on the challenge to create a documentary about agriculture, in general,” Lunz says. “He talks about people that are in their 20s that are raising and growing the food that we eat.”
She says they’re hoping consumers and farmers will see the documentary and it will start a dialogue about where the food we eat originates.
“As an agricultural community, we need to have those conversations,” Lunz says, “and I’m hoping this ‘Farmland’ documentary will give people a tool or an opportunity to watch together or start some conversations about modern food production.”
The national screening includes five theaters in Nebraska: Bellevue, Lincoln, Omaha, Scottsbluff and Wayne.
