Funded by the Department of Women's Studies at Emory University, my film weaves together the stories of the Puotinen family women and our connection with the farmhouse, farmland and each other. Fundamentally, this film is an exploration of the questions: How can I fit my own self-narrative into the narratives of my foremothers and the narrative of the farm? And, how can I honor the heritage and history of the farm and its inhabitants in my own narrative without romanticizing or mythologizing them?
