Directed by Judith Lit / Produced by Terra Productions

In an era of rapid growth of mega-farms, the encroachment of suburbia and 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.

LUNCH LOVE COMMUNITY
78 min. (12 short films playable individually or as a whole) / Closed Captioned
