PETER AND THE FARM
PETER AND THE FARM

PETER AND THE FARM, Tony Stone’s enthralling portrait of one man’s struggle to find meaning in a solitary life as an organic farmer, is set to open on Friday, November 4 at the Metrograph Theater in NYC, On Demand, on iTunes and Amazon Video. A national theatrical expansion will follow.

At once a postcard from paradise and a cautionary tale for our times, the film was featured at the True/False festival and New York’s prestigious New Directors/New Films.

Peter Dunning is a rugged individualist in the extreme and proprietor of the 187-acre Mile Hill Farm in Vermont. A hard-drinking former artist who followed his utopian dream of independent organic farming in the ‘60s, Dunning is now alienated from his family and living alone, struggling to keep himself sane, with a still nimble mind and gallows humor. Yet for all his candor, he slips into drunken, self-destructive habits and curses the pastoral landscape he has spent decades nurturing. Imbued with an aching tenderness, Tony Stone’s documentary is a mosaic of its singular subject’s transitory memories and reflections—however funny, tragic, or angry they may be.
