After Winter, Spring
In an era of rapid growth of mega-farms, the encroachment of suburbia, new European Union rules and reductions of agricultural subsidies, the farmers in the Périgord region of southwest France are forced to confront challenges that threaten the very existence of their small farms. Inter-weaving the director’s story and theirs, the film explores the nature of the farming life and the changes that have, over the last 60 years, impacted the lives of families whose survival is tied to the land. After Winter, Spring reveals the human story of family farming at a turning point in history. Directed and produced by Judith Lit.
