KATONAH, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ken Marsolais Productions, a Westchester New York based film production company announces the launch of its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for The Bullish Farmer, a feature documentary that tells the story of John Ubaldo, aka "John Boy," who traded in his Wall Street career for a quiet life as a farmer. Confronted with Big Agriculture's toxic food system, Ubaldo became a passionate activist to help preserve small farms and rural America.
The producer, Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Ken Marsolais, is no stranger to the effect that important works of the theater and film can have to inspire and raise the consciousness of viewers. "This is the most important topic of our time: thoughtful food. People need to know before it's too late," Marsolais said. "The Bullish Farmer invites viewers to reconsider the cost that our food choices and farm policies have on the environment, our health and quality of life," Marsolais added.
While principal photography and editing has been completed, the funds that are raised will be used to finance the final stages of post-production and marketing, and produce a final screener copy should the film be accepted to Sundance, as well as for other film festivals and for the general public.
Co-producer and writer Nancy Vick said, "People who support this campaign for The Bullish Farmer are helping put clean and healthy farming practices into sharp, personal focus for so many. We're thrilled to be at a stage where we can introduce the public to The Bullish Farmer."
