Chris Pawelski almost ran out of time, as a 4th-generation onion farmer on the post-glacial black dirt of Goshen, NY. Chris is just one of millions of farmers in America facing the unnecessarily Sisyphusian task of earning a living. "Muckville" follows the story of Chris's family farm through time, from the 'Polish wave' of the early 20th century, through the onset of climate-driven crop failures in the 1990's and subsequent pitfalls of US agricultural policy, and Chris's resulting existential crisis. After this short film, there will be a question and answer period with Chris Pawelski. This is a great opportunity to listen to and learn from a local farmer about all they go through.
