Farmland getting rave reviews from key film festivals in Cleveland, Nashville, Atlanta and California, prior to Iowa’s upcoming showing
Academy Award®-winning filmmaker James Moll’s new feature length documentary, Farmland, will be released nationally May 1, 2014. The film will be distributed via D&E Entertainment in more than 60 major markets, including an early upcoming screening, May 7th, at the Wynsonng 16 theater in Johnston, Iowa. Numerous national exhibitors will be carrying the film including: Regal Cinemas, Marcus Theatres, Carmike Cinemas, Landmark Theatres and many key independent theaters.
The film is still generating buzz from its recent showings in the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival and Cleveland International Film Festival.
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 which 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.”
The documentary features an original score composed by Nathan Wang with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The film also includes an original recording of “This Land is Your Land” performed in a first-ever collaboration with platinum rock band Everclear and Grammy® Award-nominated artist Liz Phair.
