Farming Forward – student/faculty film to be shown

Still from the film "Farming Forward"

Last summer, Martin Lang (communication studies professor) and Ethan Marxhausen (current sophomore majoring in political science and English) began working on a documentary about sustainable farming. Their work was supported by a Gustavus Presidential Faculty/Student Collaboration Grant. The two have continued their work on this film throughout the past academic year and showed it at a conference last month.

The Make Your Life Count blog posted a great story about Martin & Ethan’s film before I got to it, so instead of rehashing, I’ll suggest you go read that story. That story also links to the trailer for the film, which you can find on YouTube.

But better yet, you can go see film in a couple days! The St. Peter premiere is Thursday, March 11th at 7 pm at the Treaty Site History Center just North of St. Peter on Hwy 169. The showing is free and open to the public.

In addition to the support of the grant from Gustavus, Martin & Ethan’s work and this premiere event are supported by the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota, the St. Peter Food Cooperative, and the Nicollet County Historical Society.
