Milk Men

Portland filmmaker Jan Haaken’s Milk Men takes an in-depth look at the dairy industry in the Pacific Northwest. Following the paths of farmers through the changing seasons in their diverse agricultural terrains, we get a glimpse into the pressures facing the owners of smaller farms who must intensify production to stay competitive in an increasingly global economy. While exploring these problems, Haaken also reflects on the unique relationship between humans and cows while probing public discomfort with the corporatization of rural America.

Opening reception for the NW Farm Series Edition will take place prior to the premiere of Milk Men at 6pm in the upper sculpture garden of the Portland Art Museum.
