10599520_874844149203322_6591188688621406536_nOUT HERE is an 89 minute documentary film created by the Queer Farmer Film Project and Directed by Jonah Mossberg. Completed after 4 years in production, it looks at the experiences of queer farmers across the country and asks – what does it mean to be a queer farmer, is agriculture a safe space for queer people, and what are the relationships between food production and queerness? It is the filmmaker’s dream that this project will give voice and visibility to queer people in agriculture and inspire a flagrant national discussion about gender and sexuality as they are related to our food system. Directed by Jonah Mossberg (in person)

Jonah Mossberg is a queer farmer from Northeastern Connecticut. Jonah holds a B.A. in Latin American Studies and Studio Art from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. Jonah has been involved in agriculture for the past ten years in various capacities, including managing Noyo Hill Farm in rural coastal Northern California and teaching gardening to public middle school students at Alice Waters’ revolutionary Edible Schoolyard in Berkeley, California. Jonah is a proud seed saver, forager, beekeeper, and aspiring surfer. Jonah currently lives and farms in Northeastern Connecticut on a small biodynamic no-till vegetable farm. Out Here is Jonah’s first film project.
