Oklahoma Preview of FARMLAND Features Response to Movie by Young Oklahoma AgriculturalistsWed, 16 Apr 2014 07:05:47 CDT
The movie "Farmland" was shown on Tuesday evening in a special preview for Oklahoma Agricultural Leaders, just ahead of its national public rollout on May first. Several Oklahoma ag related groups sponsored the preview, including lead sponsors Oklahoma Beef Council and the Oklahoma Pork Council.
The organizers of the preview asked a young Oklahoma farmer and a young Oklaholma rancher to come and offer reaction to what they saw as they watched the documentary. The rancher was Becca McMillan, who works for the Ag Division of the Noble Foundation and ranches with her husband in southern Oklahoma.
Farm Director Ron Hays was at the premiere, and talked with McMillan after the movie was shown to over a hundred Oklahoma farm and ranch leaders. You can hear her comments by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
Farmland, will be released nationally May 1, 2014. The film will be distributed via D&E Entertainment in more than 60 major markets.The movie will be seen in four markets initially in Oklahoma, with theatres in Claremore, El Reno, Sapulpa and Tulsa to be showing the film.
Farmland offers viewers an intimate and firsthand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers across the U.S. chronicling their high-risk/high-reward jobs, and their passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
“In Farmland, audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture, but not from me, and not from a narrator,” Moll says about his film. “They're from the mouths of the farmers and ranchers themselves.”
