- Boer Jansen / Farmer Jack 13 mins
Jack Jansen is living a happy farmer's life with his cow, his sheep and his chicken, until prices drop and money runs out. A pharmacist and a salesman seem to have a solution, tripling production with mysterious pills. Jack becomes a successful farm manager, investing and expanding to battle the recession. But sometimes the cure is worse than the disease, and when the pills start to have strange effects on his animals, things start spiraling out of control ...
The poignant modern day farming story, strong designs and haunting soundtrack make Farmer Jack a powerful short film about animal welfare and consequently, our own welfare.
