FARMING ON THE FLINT

Director: Kit Vinsick
  6 min

Cast: H Adam Lenz, Adrian Hernandez, Jack Zanini, Karen Dever

When the celebrated film director-known as “M”-began her groundbreaking production, she did not foresee the unintended consequences of her project. M’s action packed film chronicled two women trailblazers in the detection and extermination business on their mission to eradicate a global pest from the face of the earth.

But, nature can be cruel. M’s film never saw the light of day. A tiny bloodsucking parasite led to the demise of the feted director. What it triggered in the mind of her nosey “Citizen Kane” neighbor, and by extension in our lives, is epic. 

Farmers along the Flint River in Southwest Georgia are engaged in an ongoing effort to conserve, innovate and care for the land on which they live and farm.
