Wheat remains the area’s most prominent and widely grown crop. So a documentary movie about harvesting wheat should be well received in this part of the world.
Conrad Weaver, an independent filmmaker based in Maryland, is making a documentary that “will encompass a 10-state region and showcase the lives of hard-working American families, who spend as many as 100 days each year traveling from state to state harvesting the wheat that feeds the world,” according to information from the movie’s web site, http://wheatharvestmovie.wordpress.com/.
The movie, which doesn’t have a name yet, is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2014. To watch a promotional trailer for the film, go to http://wheatharvestmovie.com.
