- As an urban farmer and someone always seeking to reconnect with traditional ways of doing things, the trailer for After Winter, Spring captured my attention. With many innovations happening in agriculture it is always a balancing act between more efficient methods of farming and doing right by the planet. After Winter, Spring drops the viewer right into the middle of this age old debate. With beautiful imagery and poignant narration, the film makes it clear that the caring for field and fowl are really issues of the heart and staying connected to the land is vital to our understanding of what it means to be human.
