Living Lightly (2007)

Available worldwide

This sweet film offers a unique glimpse into the world of a 21st-century family that chooses to live close to the land.

In a corner of New Brunswick, Canada, the craft of scything is practiced as meditation in action. Living Lightly poetically explores a way of relating to the land, and the bounty that comes from such devotion. You’ll love the competition between the gas-powered weed whacker and the young woman in a sun dress wielding a scythe!

Living lightly and working so rhythmically together is very moving to see. It was an emotional experience.

The incredible unity of this family with each other, their work, and the earth is breathtaking. Just seeing such an alternative way of life made me briefly sob from the depths of my soul; the life that could be lived vs city 9 to 5, continuous commuting through traffic, and children playing video games. This little short expresses the way of life intended for mankind, living lightly.
