FARMSTEADERS is a feature-length documentary by director Shaena Mallett. I was the lead editor on the team. 

Film synopsis:

Out of the ashes of a once-thriving farm community, a philosophical farmer gives everything he has to resurrect his late grandfather’s land, provide for his growing family, and reimagine a better way to feed people. Clear-eyed and intimate, this moving documentary portrait–set in the verdant foothills of Ohio–is as much a study of place as it is a study of persistence.
