CANCELLED! *** L/A Film Forum: Betting the Farm
Feb 05, 2014— 6:00 pm
The L/A Film Forum resumes on Wed., Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. with a showing of the independent documentary film, Betting the Farm. This free, public screening for adults will be held in the Library’s Callahan Hall.
Betting The Farm is the story of a group of Maine dairy farmers who, dropped by their national milk company, are suddenly confronted with the real possibility of losing their farms. Banding together, the farmers launch their own milk company. Farmers Vaughn Chase, Richard Lary, and Aaron Bell–along with their families–struggle to make ends meet as they get the company off the ground. But faced with slow sales and mounting bills, can the farmers hang together long enough for the gamble to pay off? Or will they be left worse off than before?
This L/A Film Forum program will begin at 5:45 p.m. with social time and refreshments. A short discussion will follow the showing of the film.
