Field Work: A Family Farm, a documentary by award-winning filmmaker John Helde, makes its Iowa broadcast debut Sunday, April 12 at 1 p.m. on Iowa Public Television.

A quietly powerful journey to the heartland of America, Field Work: A Family Farm tells the story of the Swansons, Iowa family farmers who struggle to stay small in an era of mega-farms. In the last 60 years, technology and economics have reshaped America’s agricultural landscape; the quest for ever-higher yields and the flight of the younger generation has resulted in bigger and bigger farms. Shooting entirely in central Iowa, director John Helde spent several years tracking the Swanson family through the economic roller-coaster of the recession years.

James Moore talks with the award-winning director about his film. The music for the soundtrack was created by Fairfield's own Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter, who also speaks with James plus debuts her and her husand Dennis James new song "A Patch of Land."
