How does a blind farmer manage their farm? What do sheep see? Watch how a 1950s farmer moves his whole farm and livestock by train on the coldest night of the year. Meet the farmer who rides his bull to work and find out whether living near cows makes people happier.
Join the FIELD research team for an illuminating evening of archive film and moving image from the collections of BFI, Museum of English Rural Life and Media Archive of Central England about British and East Midlands farming heritage plus new commissioned short films from documentary filmmakers and artists: Mark Jones, Shane Finan and Michele Allen.
FIELDS: Farming on Film is part of a six month public programme that examines the lives, stories and experiences of British Sheep, cows and farmers, past and present.
Doors open at 19:00, event starts at 19:30. This event includes introduction, intermissions and Q&A with filmmakers, researchers and farmers.
