Agrarian Utopia in Wisconsin

America's Dairyland is the setting for the Wisconsin Film Festival, which wraps up this weekend.

Among the selections on Sunday in the Madison, Wisconsin, festival is Agrarian Utopia (Sawan Baan Na), a hardscrabble tale of rice farmers, struggling to bring their crop in and survive another season.

It's been too long since I've been in that part of the country, but I'll venture to guess that Uruphong Raksasad's experimental documentary might have resonance in this Midwestern U.S. city surrounded by farmland, where family farms are becoming factory farms.
