Get immersed in 21st century farming in Latvia, accompanied by the narration of one of the most iconic directors today.
Through six very different families, the documentary “The Land” shows the variety of the countryside in the 21st century, the contradictions of countryside living as well as illusions about a farmer’s life. But what unites them all – they aspire for the stability provided by their own land and house. Together with our protagonists, we will spend one year’s cycle of a farmer’s life, which will start with the spring sowing and finish with the autumn harvest and land preparation for the next year. These individual stories will draw the landscape of the 21st-century countryside.
