Facing seizure of their own lands, two families find themselves farming together on the same field, hoping just to get through another rice-farming season. But no matter how much the world is evolving, how much the country is going through economic, political, and social changes, they still cannot grasp the new ideology of “happiness.” How can you dream of utopia when your stomach is still grumbling?
Apart from filmmaking, what interests me to an equal extent is agriculture. I feel it is among mankind’s most noble professions.
To compare, in agriculture we get to produce food from the soil for direct consumption, while other occupations only produce us income for buying food.
Modern agriculture is facing problems on many levels, from land ownership to national policy’s focus on economic growth and international competition. What are all these for ultimately? I wonder if globalization forces today have become much more powerful than national governments. I don’t know where it will take us.
