Aliona van der Horst · Luuk Bouwman

A humorous and loving portrait of an old-school crop farmer who cheerfully weathers life's headwinds.

For more than half a century, farmer Gerlach has walked the ground around his wooden house in the shadow of Schiphol Airport. He is the last small arable farmer from his area who still manages to hold on. With inimitable humor, coupled with a philosophical view of the world, he continues to resist threats of dispossession, disease and climate change. A poetic epic about an anarchist farmer who braves all of life's headwinds with dignity.
