RACHEL’S FARM Q&A Screenings Announced


Madman Entertainment is delighted to reveal that acclaimed actor and director Rachel Ward will participate in a season of special Q&A events ahead of the theatrical release of Rachel’s Farm in August. Rachel will be joined after screenings of the film for an on-stage discussion with a variety of special guests including Bryan BrownJoost Bakker, Monique Ryan and more.

Rachel’s Farm is an uplifting documentary following Rachel Ward, who sets out to regenerate her northern NSW beef farm, with the help of experts and neighbours. For many years, her Nambucca Valley property was a family retreat, conventionally farmed by Rachel’s neighbour Mick. The 2019 Black Summer fires spared the farm, but the near-miss – and a first grandchild – set Rachel thinking hard about the future. Mick encourages Rachel to challenge established farming practices, and take on a new approach which starts from the soil up. It’s hands-on hard work, but Rachel’s determination, and her joy at finding solutions – not to mention dung beetles – is palpable. Rachel’s Farm is about the environmental threats we face, but it’s also the story of one woman’s resolve to tackle them head on, intent on making a difference.

Rachel’s Farm is directed by Rachel Ward and is produced by Bettina Dalton PGA.
