The film tells an intimate story of the hope, struggles and perseverance of a group of small, Maine dairy farmers in their efforts to get their own milk cooperative, Maine’s Own Organic Milk (MOO Milk), off the ground. “Filmmakers Cecily Pingree and Jason Mann capture their struggles with sensitivity and painterly beauty,” praises the Washington Post. Bill Eldridge, CEO of Moo Milk, will join the screening for questions and discussion.
