Saturday 19th October will see the remarkable story of a maverick farmer and his unruly cows come to West Stafford just outside of Dorchester for a special screening of the British documentary film everyone is talking about!
The Moo Man is a film by Andy Heathcote and Heike Bachelier filmed over four years on the marshes of the Pevensey Levels. In an attempt to save his family farm, dairy farmer Stephen Hook decides to turn his back on the cost cutting dairies and supermarkets, and instead stay small and keep his close relationship with the herd. However farmer Hook's plans to save the farm do not always go down well with his 55 spirited cows. The result is a laugh-out-loud, emotional roller-coaster of a journey. You will never see cows in the same way again!
Hailed as "The number one movie of the Sundance 2013 Film Festival", the film is receiving rave reviews and recognition around the world.
The Moo Man is a heart warming, tearjerker of a movie about the incredible bonds between man, animal and countryside. According to Variety magazine it is "An endearing portrait of the kind of age-old family farm that's becoming extinct" and the Daily Telegraph say "This story cannot fail to leave you moo-ved!".
Local animal welfare group Compassionate Dorset who are based in Dorchester have been granted special permission by the filmmakers to have this fundraising film night here in Dorset, in aid of the leading farm animal welfare charity Compassion in World Farming which was itself founded by a concerned dairy farmer on a mission to improve the lives of farm animals.
We have some great prizes for our raffle too including champagne, gift vouchers, artist prints, cookbooks & some Lush smellies plus we will have drinks, vegan friendly cakes, our farm animal t-shirts and some gorgeous new prints and xmas cards for sale too.
It looks like it will be a fantastic and very moo-ving moo-vie (there you go, we said it!!!)...
