“Farming in Fear” Documentary Examiners Farmers’ Rights

Farmers are no strangers to hard work and defending their ground and it seems like lately, all too often, defending their ground means defending against over-regulating governments.

An award-winning short film direct by Sean Malone, “Farming in Fear,” documents the struggle of Virginia farmer whose dream of holding onto her property is put in jeopardy.

“Facing overwhelming odds in the form of collusion involving a ruthless local government, a rapacious environmental group, powerful real estate interests, and even the IRS, Martha Boneta stood her ground,” says Bonner Cohen, senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research and senior policy analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). “The film documents her struggle against corrupt forces intent on driving her off her land. Her ultimate triumph is inspirational and so is this documentary.”

The film won Excellence in Filmmaking for a Short Documentary and the Audience Choice Awards at the Anthem Film Festival and is now screening at universities across the United States.
