GREENWELL BARN

by Tony HILL new filmmaker
2004 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 7' 09




A tour of an old barn narrated by the farmer, Arnold Cole, who has known it for over 50 years. Redundant barn spaces and features serve to prompt the story of changes in farming practice. From milking by hand through the coming of electricity to developments in baling and feeding methods, the transformation from farming as a way of life to farming as agribusiness is charted.
Screened in the "Focus on Farmers" touring exhibition at venues in the south west of England.
