Green Screen Film Series – Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman

January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Environmental Defenders of McHenry County presents Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman the inspiring story of heartland conservation heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water.

The film is a tribute in part to people like Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soil, and Dusty Crary, a fourth-generation Montana rancher who forged alliances between cattlemen, federal agencies, hunters and environmental groups to protect the Rocky Mountain Front.

Based on a book by best-selling author Miriam Horn of Environmental Defense Fund, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman was directed by Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Susan Froemke and Emmy winner John Hoffman, and narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw. Running time: 103 minutes
