FARM

FARM is a 3D experimental melodrama and abstract tragicomedy using multiple intersecting story lines, fractured editing, and pulsating color fields. Set on a fictional urban farm in San Francisco, FARM contrasts the romantic ideal of nature with the fragility of human relationships to reflect on loss, family disfunction, merciless progress, and mortality.

Written and directed by Dale Hoyt and produced and engineered in stereoscopic 3D by David Lawrence, FARM features a score by Chrome, Annette Peacock, Cameron Ember, and Lian Amber and stars Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough, Cliff Hengst, Winston Tong, Helios Creed, Annie Sprinkle, Monet Clark, Róisín Isner, Armand Caputi, and is the final screen appearance of legendary San Francisco performer Arturo Galster.
