Farming Families

Farming Families

Creative Documentary | Participatory Short Films | Project

Completed 2006

Unique as the land that surrounds it, the exhibition on-line and at Newlyn Art Gallery was a seasonal journey of a rural community.

Using storytelling, personal objects, moving and still images, digital technology, Super 8 and black & white film hand printed photography, the project fused the facts of agricultural life with the families' creativity and insight to explore issues of work, community and cultural identity.

Created by Roz and Jim Nixon of Trewoofe Wartha, Monica and Roy Olds of Mulfra Farm, Deryck and David Eddy of Boleigh Farm in collaboration with film-maker Barbara Santi.
