THE MOO MAN + Director Q&A

Special Preview + Q&A with Directors and star Farmer Stephen Hook.
Dir: Andy Heathcote & Heike Bachelier
United Kingdom / 2013 / 98mins

Stephen Hook is not your average dairy farmer, but then Ida and her 55 spirited bovine cohorts are not your average Friesian cows.

Determined not to succumb to the cost cutting ways of modern dairies and supermarkets, Hook and Son, a family run Sussex farm, stick to their guns and sell raw, unpasteurised milk direct to consumers. But life on the farm is not just a profession for Stephen: each cow has a name and is lovingly cared for, especially the farm's resident "cover girl," Ida.

Tender, captivating and comical, The Moo Man is a careful portrait of the rarest of maverick farmers, and his even rarer relationship with his herd.

Followed by a post-screening Q&A with directors Andy Heathcote & Heike Bachelier, and star farmer Stephen Hook.
