UÅR / The Resilient

The Resilient follows the drought-stricken Norwegian farmer Einar as he is searching for ways to continue the family legacy of dairy farming. After the most difficult season of his career, he travels to Malawi in East Africa to learn from farmers who have been living with the impacts of climate change for more than a decade.

The film had its broadcast premiere on NRK on 11 September 2019 (link).

With this film, we hope to foster debate about the links between climate change and food production, and we have therefore partnered with The Development Fund and The Norwegian Farmer's Association on a community screening campaign. Organizations and farmers groups can host screenings of The Resilient in their local communities, free of charge. Read more at  The Development Fund's website (in Norwegian).
