If it had happened in America, Midian Farm would be a Hollywood script. Instead, its legacy is memorialized through a compelling point-of-view historical Canadian documentary. From 1971 – 1977, Midian Farm was a back-to-the-land social experiment created by a community of urban baby boomers from Toronto. Part of the youth counterculture movement during a period of social and political re-imagining, its utopian vision eventually collapsed. More than four decades later, filmmaker Liz Marshall unearths a transformative piece of family and Canadian history.
 
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING
 

"Liz Marshall's Midian Farm is a fascinating personal journey that gives us an  intimate look at the dreams and disappointments surrounding an idealistic life experiment." - Chris Hegedus, Pennebaker Hegedus Films

"A very personal act of excavation and reclamation that speaks to the ideals and disappointments of a generation." - Tom Charity, Vancouver International Film Festival 

"Through beautiful footage Midian Farm reveals the contours of a Christian rural utopian community in the late nineteen sixties and early seventies. Amidst the warmth of a southern Ontario summer the re-union of many of its members plumbs the depths of what it means to have hope and work hard for a vision, while revisiting the site to see the poignant kindled flame four decades later." - Dr. Christopher Ross, Clinical Psychologist, Emeritus Associate Professor in Psychology and Religion, Wilfrid Laurier University
