"Great American Wheat Harvest" Film Showcased on OETA

Tue, 05 May 2015 12:35:52 CDT

One year after the "Great American Wheat Harvest" documentary debuted in Oklahoma, the film will be shown statewide on public television. The documentary film will be shown this Thursday, May 7th on OETA- PBS in Oklahoma at 7 p.m.

The "Great American Wheat Harvest" documentary film tells the story of five custom harvesting families and crews who travel from Texas to the Canadian border each year harvesting wheat. One of the custom harvesters featured in the movie was the Misener Family Harvesting of Elk City, Oklahoma. Documentary filmmaker and video producer Conrad Weaver of Emmitsburg, Maryland, showed the enormous risk that custom harvesters take each year. The film also shows the impact of the drought and how mother nature impacts everyone involved in agriculture.

Thousands of people have already seen the film in movie theaters across the United States along with screenings on public television and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Weaver says he hopes people will have a better understanding of where their food comes from and what it takes to get a loaf of bread to the table.

The film is also available on DVD and Blu-ray disc. The disc includes the feature film plus many extra features not seen in the film. For more information about the film, or to order a DVD or Blu-ray, visit www.GreatAmericanWheatHarvest.com.
