68-year old Peter Dunning runs an idyllic family farm in rural Vermont, a seeming haven of barns, animals, and wide acreage. His white beard invokes the days of Puritan settlers, and his charismatic sense of storytelling has a beatnik charm. But beneath the surface lies a deeply troubled soul – a former artist whose alcoholism and depression have long since driven his children, wife, and friends away from the farm. “I care more about the farm than I care about me,” he says, going about his daily work in boozy isolation. Peter and the Farm is an enthralling portrait of one man’s struggle to find meaning in the great outdoors. Colorado Premiere. (USA, 2016)
