Haunting and deeply human, Christopher LaMarca’s documentary feature film Boone tells the story of three young goat farmers as they transition with the seasons and come to terms with the physical and emotional grit required to live in deep relationship with the land. Stripped of interviews with farmers or agricultural experts, this experiential film is a visceral meditation on the sacrifice and struggle of a lifestyle born of self-reliance; a sensual homage to the heart and soul of a farmer.
