Farmer John comes to Lexington

A terrific film, "The Real Dirt on Farmer John," is coming to Lexington's wonderful Kentucky Theater on February 21, and it's going to be free! Here's a description of the film, which I have seen and recommend for its truthfulness and openness about both farming and life:

The Real Dirt on Farmer John (2005); United States; not rated: Taggart Siegel's documentary looks at John Peterson, a Midwestern farmer who opened his land to a communal group of hippies and artists in the 1960s and, during the ensuing decades, survived numerous natural and economic crises to maintain his farm. 5 and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21, Kentucky Theatre.

We owe this free showing to the wonderful One World Film Festival, a Lexington jewel, now nine years old, that keeps getting better and better. Check out the other excellent free offerings all through February, and I'll see you at the movies.
