Important documentary FARMLAND coming to our Plains Theater
According to Politico’s “Morning Agriculture” blog written by Jenny Hopkinson, FARMLAND is rallying around the agriculture industry. A private screening of FARMLAND drew a big crowd recently to the amphitheater at the Ronald Reagan Building, including Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and representatives from various agriculture trade groups. The documentary, which shows the daily life of six young and diverse farmers, is part of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance’s effort to tell the farmers' side of the agriculture production story, as consumers become increasingly concerned about how their food is produced. In an interview with MA prior to the screening, Moll said he has no connection to agriculture, but after making the film, he won’t be as full of fear when he shops at the grocery store.
“I have heard so much from my friends about how unhealthy some of our food is and how we have to be careful about some of the things we buy and make the right choices, and ultimately the experience became one of fear,” Moll said. “And after making this film, that fear has subsided quite a bit.”

The film is brought to you by Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center and in part by Kiowa County Farm Bureau, Kiowa County National Bank in Eads, Kiowa County Conservation District, Kiowa County WIFE, and Scherler Farms. The Plains Theater is the only movie theater in the state of Colorado showing the film so it is important people out here get a chance to view it.
