From freeze to bloom – the rhythms and splendour of life on a flower farm

Offering viewers a soothing step out of clock time, The Flower Farmer’s Year follows the diligent work of Leslie LeFranc on Touche-à-Tout Gardens, her ‘micro flower farm’ in rural Pennsylvania. Few words are spoken but many captivating moments emerge as LeFranc – with a combination of physical labour and deep botanical expertise – plants, cultivates, cuts and then finally harvests seeds to prepare for yet another year. Oriel Danielson’s delicate work behind the camera mirrors that of his subject, as his 12 months of filming result in something gentle yet stunning – a collaboration between filmmaker, farmer and the circular rhythms of nature that finds beauty in patience and care.

Director: Oriel Danielson
