Dryland is an intimate portrait of rural America in transition, told over ten years, through the eyes of a young man pursuing his dream and a town fighting to survive. The 62-minute film will screen in Portland, Saturday, November 15, at 3:30 p.m. at the Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium, inside the Portland Art Museum, as part of the 41st Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival.
Winner of two "Best Feature Documentary" awards in film festivals in 2014, the film’s mission is to spark fresh conversation about the need to preserve family farms and reinvigorate local towns, while bridging gaps in understanding between urban and rural Americans, keen to participate in a truly sustainable future for agriculture. The filmmakers will be present, along with three cast members and composer Mark Orton (Nebraska).
“Dryland, a documentary that traces the lives of farmers in the tiny Adams County, WA town of Lind, has been praised for its personal and emotional impact as well as its unflinching look at life in the American West.”
