Inheriting the Farm

Authors: Matti Bauer. Human interest - BR - 2007 - 45 min

Two years passed by since director Matti Bauer spend a summer with the dairymaid Uschi on a mountain pasture near Tegernsee and followed her with his camera.

A lot has happened since then, much of which Uschi did not plan. Eighteen month ago she gave birth to her son Jacob. On shaky legs, he is already exploring the farm on which his mother, too, grew up. As a single mum, Uschi bears a lot of responsibility and soon she will also take over her parents’ estate. It’s a new challenge for the young woman who has just passed her agricultural exams.
