Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman
Purchased by Discovery Communications as a completed concept, and debuting in the prestigious Documentary Premieres Section at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman weaves together the stories of four unlikely conservation heroes working in America’s heartland. At a moment when it seems that collaboration is not just nonexistent but impossible, these working families cross political and other divides to arrive at real solutions for protecting the land and sea that define our country – and are crucial to all of our survival. From the Montana Rockies to the fields of Kansas to the Gulf of Mexico, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman showcases the successes of a new crop of conservation heroes.
Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman premiered as part of Discovery Impact, a slate of groundbreaking documentaries focusing on humankind’s impact on the environment and what individuals and society as a whole can do to solve some of the largest problems facing the planet. Narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw, and directed by Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated Susan Froemke and PGP’s founder Emmy-winning filmmaker John Hoffman, the film is based on Miriam Horn’s recently released book, “Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman: Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland.”
The story of a huge, largely hidden, and entirely unexpected conservation movement in America.
