Film festival to feature ag documentary

The Heartland Hawk Film Festival kicks off with an intimate look at how modern stresses are taking a mental health toll on midwestern farmers.


Heartland Community College presents the documentary Greener Pastures during the first night of the  two-day film festival held on May 8 -9 at the Normal Theater.


Greener Pastures, directed by Indianapolis-based filmmaker Samuel-Ali Mirpoorian, captures the day-to-day lives of four small, Midwestern, multigenerational family farms over the course of three years. Through an intimate, observational lens, the film examines the farm stressors, policies, and politics that farmers must maneuver to survive, connecting the dots between mental health, industrialization, food production, and climate change.


The festival kicks off on with a screening of Greener Pastures on Wednesday, May 8.


The Heartland Community College Film Festival presents student and alumni work at the Festival on Thursday, May 9.  Admission to both nights of the festival is free and open to the public.
