Living Lightly

Montana Premiere

Living Lightly offers a magical glimpse into a world where one 21st Century family lives with the land in its seasons. In a corner of New Brunswick, Canada, the craft of scything is practiced as meditation in action. Robin Burke’s poetic film explores a way of relating to and loving the land and the bounty it conveys in return for devotion. Cassis Birgit Staudt’s music works with the dancing rhythms of the scythe.
