Dreaming of a Vetter World tells the story of the Vetters, a visionary Nebraska farm family who understood that modern agriculture was ailing--and found a cure we all can use to help heal ourselves, our communities and our lands.
This beautiful work by first-time filmmaker Bonnie Hawthorne explores one family's mission to farm in harmony with the complex web of life. With salt-of-the-earth wisdom and wry Midwestern humor, the film tells a story of place, faith and love. Dreaming of a Vetter World is an inspiring example of doing what you know is right, against all odds.
Bonnie Hawthorne is the director, cinematographer, editor, writer and narrator of Dreaming of a Vetter World. As a film student at NYU in the 1980s, her documentary teacher said there would come a day when one woman could go AWOL from her day job cutting television shows, take off in a tiny camper and make a film with cameras small enough to fit in a purse. That day finally arrived. This film is the result.
