A Farmer's Days On Earth by Adam Shand

I just stumbled across a staggeringly beautiful documentary on Maori Television called A Farmer's Days On Earth. Sadly, I can't find any information about it on either IMDB or Google.

It was a very simple story of a small organic Swedish farmer who ran his farm in the traditional ways. It was mostly just shots of him working the farm, talking to his wife, and the scenery interlaced with his commentary (in subtitles) about why he thinks this type of farming is important, what he fears is coming and a little bit of EU politics. Towards the end, he discovers that he has terminal cancer and the movie focuses more on that.

Highly recommended ... if you can find it.
