A Life on The Farm
Running time: 75 mins
A strange story from Somerset, England about a filmmaking farmer and the inspiring legacy of his long-lost home movies.
When filmmaker Oscar Harding's grandfather passed away in the rural English county of Somerset, his family inherited an extraordinary video tape - a feature-length home movie from neighbour Charles Carson.
Charles was an inventor, an outsider artist, and a pioneer of death positivity, to name just a few of the filmmaking farmer’s achievements. Charles’ life and work are examined by those who knew him best, as well as a whole new generation of fans who have been inspired by the legacy he left behind.
A Life On The Farm is an exploration and celebration of Charles Carson and his movies, rescued from obscurity, which present a moving and laugh-out-loud document of a vision of rural life in danger of being lost to history.
