A single screen HD soundfilm exploring the experiences of the last remaining family working their organic farm at the end of Runway B of Narita International Airport in Japan. This soundfilm is a collaboration between Rupert Cox and Angus Carlyle and it is the result of two periods of fieldwork in Narita (after several preliminary visits by Rupert): one timed to coincide with the harvest, the other with the sowing season. The work was supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award
In this version, the film was selected for the 'special interest' category at the Royal Anthropological Institute's 2011 Ethnographic Film Festival.
