Can those who make their living off the land recalibrate their work to conserve that very same land? In this insightful documentary, divided into three segments revolving around the titular occupations, cameras follow five workers striving to live sustainably off farmland, ranches, and the sea. Narrated by Tom Brokaw and directed by Oscar nominee Susan Froemke and Emmy winner John Hoffman, this beautifully shot film captures the breathtaking vistas of American geography, and challenges the perception that environmentalism and capitalism are hopelessly opposed. Thought-provoking and evocative, “Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman” sheds a hopeful light on the intelligent solutions that are available for our most pressing environmental issues, if only we are willing to transcend politics and protect our precious natural resources. In Person: Director Susan Froemke
