‘A Life on the Farm’ Review: An Ode to the Artist in All of Us (Fantastic Fest 2022)

A Life on the Farm recounts the discovery of this old videotape owned by filmmaker Oscar Harding’s grandfather, which contains a feature-length home video written, directed, and starred by his neighbor, one very eccentric farmer named Charles Carson. What follows is a celebration of life, death, family, and the yearning to create art, no matter the cost.
