In the Périgord region of southwest France, a rural community grapples with a profound question: will it be the last generation of farmers in a region cultivated for 5,000 years? Filmed over four years, After Winter, Spring captures the changing lives of farmers with deep roots in the Périgord. Their story is recorded by their American neighbor, a filmmaker raised on her family’s farm in Pennsylvania. Inter-weaving their stories, it reveals the human story of family farming at a turning point in history.
