This film document reflects the dynamic nature of local food and farming in the Northern Berkshire community over two years (2008-2010). The footage follows some of the key players in the developing local food system in interviews, in the course of their everyday work, as well as in the challenges they face. Director/editor Sharon Wyrrick calls this a film document, as it does not tell a single story, but reflects the lives and commitments of a community hard at work creating a vibrant local food system.
If you missed the screening of my film, PLACE OF STONES: Food in Motion , about local food and farming in North Berkshire at Images Cinema back in April at the Farm Film Festival - you've another chance to view it! It will be airing on cable access stations NBCTC (North Adams, Adams, Clarksburg, and Cheshire) and on WilliNet (Williamstown) soon.
