MCPL & POV Movie Night: "Farmsteaders"

Adults & Teens Join us for a special screening of the POV film "Farmsteaders" before it airs on public television!

Director Shaena Mallett's film follows Nick Nolan and his young family on a journey to resurrect his late grandfather's dairy farm as agriculture moves toward large-scale farming. A study of place and persistence, "Farmsteaders" points an honest and tender lens at everyday life in rural America and provides a glimpse at the struggles faced by many farmers in Wisconsin's own dairy industry.

This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS (, and the film will premiere on PBS Sept. 2.

Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information.
