“Farmland” by Oscar winner James Moll to be shown in Portland on May 15

Academy Award®-winning filmmaker James Moll’s new feature length documentary, Farmland, will make its Oregon debut on May 15 at Portland’s Century 16 Eastport Plaza theater, 4040 SE 82nd Ave. in Portland.

Farmland offers viewers an intimate and firsthand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers across the U.S., chronicling their high-risk/high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

“In Farmland, audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture, but not from me, and not from a narrator,” Moll says about his film. “They’re from the mouths of the farmers and ranchers themselves.”

The documentary features an original score composed by Nathan Wang with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The film also includes an original recording of “This Land is Your Land” performed in a first-ever collaboration with platinum rock band Everclear and Grammy® Award-nominated artist Liz Phair.
