Sidewalk Film Festival is produced by the Alabama Moving Image Association, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to inspire, encourage and support filmgoers, the city of Birmingham and the filmmaking community. In addition to hosting the annual film festival, we host monthly networking and educational events, a monthly documentary series, short film and screenwriting competitions, manage a youth board and a variety of other year-round programs.

This film is a part of the Life & Liberty Sidebar sponsored by EBSCO.

After serving three combat tours in Iraq former soldier Alex Sutton attempts to build a new life as a farmer in rural North Carolina. However, the aftershocks of war don’t allow for an easy transition. A microcosmic study of post-traumatic stress, Farmer/Veteran confronts the side effects of combat, the impact on those that live through such and the fallout that deeply affects surrounding loved ones. The documentary is simultaneously beautiful and terrifying and possesses a tone and style reminiscent of Marwencol and Billy the Kid, while yet remaining wholly original.
