Coming to VOD today, Tuesday, January 8: BETTING THE FARM
Cecily Pingree and Jason Mann’s portrait of Maine dairy farmer collective made its world premiere last Summer at Silverdocs. It has gone on to screen at Camden and DOC NYC, as well as a tour of engagements in Maine. FilmBuff is releasing the doc on iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Playstation, XBOX, CinemaNow, and Vudu.
I previously wrote about the film in my coverage of Silverdocs for Indiewire, saying:
The economic realities for small organic dairy producers are presented in an effective and dramatic manner in Cecily Pingree and Jason Mann’s look at the efforts of a consortium of milk producers striking out on their own as MOO – Maine’s Own Organic milk. Translating the pace of the region in the same way docs like DOWNEAST and THE WAY WE GET BY have done, Pingree and Mann are able to engender in the viewer an emotional investment in their characters, as well as a desire to see MOO succeed.
