  • Saturday, March 13th, 7:00 p.m. – The Real Dirt on Farmer John comes to the Old North Charleston Picture House.  The Real Dirt on Farmer John is the epic tale of a maverick Midwestern farmer. An outcast in his community, Farmer John bravely stands amidst a failing economy, vicious rumors, and violence. By melding the traditions of family farming with the power of art and free expression, this powerful story of transformation and renewal heralds a resurrection of farming in America. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with area farmers. Contact Amy for more details.
