Pass the winter slowly (and tastefully) with SFI

The Real Dirt on Farmer John
Sunday, Dec 14, 2:30 pm,
The Toby, Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Rd.

a film showing co-hosted by the Indianapolis Museum of Art and Slow Food Indy

No tickets are required for this free program, but a suggested donation of $5 will be accepted at the door.

John Peterson is an artistic soul with a lasting connection to his northern Illinois land. This documentary captures the inherent drama of one man's agricultural life, peppered with his entertaining eccentricities (like tractor riding in drag), spiritual quests, and eventual rise from the ashes. Director Taggart Siegel combines 8-millimeter home movies with video to craft a visual tapestry of Peterson's personal evolution—his Rockwellian youth on the farm, the flamboyant 60s, the failure of family farms in the age of agribusiness, and the rise of Community Supported Agriculture and Peterson's business today, Angelic Organics. (82 mins, NR, Film shown in 35 mm.)
