American Farm. James Spione, dir. Moonlight Films. 2007, DVD.
Description: In a little town in upstate New York, a close-knit family struggles over many decades to hold onto a small dairy farm. With extraordinary candor and heartbreaking intimacy, this poignant documentary brings to light the true story of an American family: their hopes and dreams, their triumphs over tragedy, the modern conflicts that divide them and the love that binds them together.
At the center of this world, Langdon "Lanny" Ames, the fifth generation to work this land, stands proud. Yet Lanny is faced with an uncertain future when all of his children turn away from the family tradition to build lives elsewhere. Featuring new footage never seen in theatres, this Collector's Edition DVD is a moving portrait of a vanishing way of life.
