Indie Lens Pop-Up: Farmer/Veteran
May 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Alex Sutton, a veteran of three combat tours in Iraq, has been done with war for nearly a decade, but his fight is far from over. Dealing with post-traumatic stress he seeks solace in the land, investing his disability payments in a 43-acre spread in rural North Carolina and flocks of chickens and goats.
The acclaimed 2016 documentary Farmer/Veteran chronicles Sutton’s story and the larger struggle to address the health of our nation’s returning combat veterans.
Join KCPT and the Kansas International Film Festival for a special screening and discussion with the film’s director, Jeremy Lange, along with area farmers/veterans and representatives of the Farmer Veteran Coalition and Servicemember Agricultural Vocation Education (SAVE) Farm. Before and after the screening, local farmer/veterans will sell their produce and products at a pop-up market.
