'Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman' documentary viewing and panel discussion Nov. 16
The Wheat State Agronomy Club and the Agronomy Graduate Student Association will host a viewing of "Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman" at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, in DUE 1109, the Engineering Hall auditorium.
Debuted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and aired on the Discovery Channel, "Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman" tells the inspiring story of heartland heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water.
A panel featuring K-State graduate and star of the film, Justin Knopf, as well as Miriam Horn, author of the book "Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman: Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland," which the film is based on, will following the viewing.
Narrated by Tom Brokaw, directed by Emmy-winning Susan Froemke and Emmy-winning filmmaker John Hoffman, the film is a tribute to people like Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soils and protect downstream waters from pollution. Knopf is making long-term investments to ensure that the next generations of farmers will inherit fertile, productive lands.
