“After Winter, Spring” is a film about a small rural community in the Perigord region of southwestern France, cultivated for over 6000 years caught between their traditional ways of farming and an uncertain future.  Their story is beautifully and lovingly filmed and recorded by one of their neighbors, filmmaker Judith Lit.  Through the compelling stories of these hard-working farmers inextricably connected to their land and their animals, the film explores the nature of small farmers and the rapid changes of the last 2 decades that have impacted the lives of farmers whose survival is tied to the land.

“This film is never less than a pleasure to watch” Brian Miller, Seattle Weekly
