Edouard Bergeon became a filmmaker, but his father Christian followed the family tradition and became a farmer in western France. Hit by disasters and depression, Christian committed suicide in 1999, a choice that hundreds of French farmers make every year. In Sons of the Land Edouard goes back to his roots, spending over a year filming French livestock farmer S├ębastien Itard and his family. Squeezed by high interest rates and low milk prices, S├ębastien must also contend with his overbearing father. Sons of the Land is a grippingly composed and highly personal film about the harsh struggles of the European farming community.

There will be a QandA after the screening.
