The film: THE FARM AND ITS STATE by Marc Sequin
Quebec

2017. 116 min. (G)

The director or another participant in making the film will attend the presentation.

The Farm and its State is a current portrait of the live forces and aberrations in Quebec's agriculture.  For eighteen months, we followed young educated farmers (women and men) who dream of participating in a responsible, innovative and ecologial agriculture in a system where they have difficulty existing, while the reality changes under our very eyes.  The film claims this new identity and an agricultural policy which takes reality into account.
