fridays on the farm

No, not a new friday segment... this short doc/movie is actually called Fridays on the Farm and follows a Delaware family as they experience a "share" of a farm's crop (and all the questions that led to that i.e. where does our food come from etc). Filmed with a ton of macro/time lapse it is great viewing, and though you may have heard some of the thoughts before, this was infact created in 2005 I believe so not at all late to the party. On the subject of family; a bunch of eternal truths anyway... 19 minutes. Further reading.
As he photographs the growing process, the filmmaker (Richard Power Hoffmann) moves from passive observer to active participant in the planting and harvesting of vegetables. ...this personal essay is a father’s meditation on his blossoming family and community.
