A Life on the Farm (12A)
★★★✭ "An eccentric Somerset farmer’s home videos are a gift for director Oscar Harding, serving as a moving and surreal portrait of one man’s quiet rural existence in this delightful documentary." ~ The Observer.
An exploration and celebration of Charles Carson and his movies, rescued from obscurity, which present a moving and laugh-out-loud document of a vision of rural life in danger of being lost to history.
When filmmaker Oscar Harding’s grandfather passed away in the rural English county of Somerset, his family inherited an extraordinary video tape – a feature-length home movie from neighbour Charles Carson, which can best be described as “Monty Python meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”.
But there’s so much more to the man than his bizarre videos – Charles was an inventor, an outsider artist, and a pioneer of death positivity, to name just a few of the filmmaking farmer’s achievements.
Charles’ life and work are examined by those who knew him best, as well as a whole new generation of fans who have been inspired by the legacy he left behind.
