The Real Dirt on Farmer John

Rated NR

This would be an interesting document on one farmer’s attempt to save the family farm in the age of increasingly corporate farming, but it turns out it’s much more than that. It’s also a history of family who came late to farming and struggled through three generations to hang on to it. It’s also something of a history of American farming itself. But really, this is a movie about farmer John Peterson, who is a farmer who could probably do a great job arranging your furniture. He eats dirt. He dresses in what could only be called celebratory clothing. And he loves the earth. It’s inspiring; it’s a testament to an American’s right to free expression; and it’s an interesting lesson in what communities can do when presented with farming as a moral problem.
