Storyline

In the Périgord region of southwest France, a rural community grapples with a profound question: will it be the last generation of family farmers in a region continuously cultivated for over five thousand years? AFTER WINTER, SPRING is an intimate study of these French farmers as they struggle with that issue. Six years in the making, the film captures the daily lives of Nanou, Guy and other neighbors with deep roots in the Périgord. At their kitchen tables and in their fields, these family farmers communicate a profound attachment to the land. But the film's characters also share their day-to-day challenges and their fears that small-scale operations such as theirs may be no match for the multitude of 21st century threats. In an era of rapid growth of mega-farms, the encroachment of suburbia, new European Union rules, and reductions of agricultural subsidies, these farmers - young and old - are forced to confront challenges that threaten the very existence of their small farms. Their... Written by Judith Lit

A primitivist fairy tale with strong christian values
28 January 2018 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

This is just another primitivist tale for the city folk. There where the air is artificially heated, artificially scented, artificially filtered and the audience is well fed, an emotional fairy tale will usually strike an emotional cord. Nothing special, just a well worn argument built again in order to justify taking government funding.
