THE LAST CROP
The film is a tribute to farmers Annie and Jeff Main, and other small family farmers, whose lifelong work has changed our food system for the better. It is a CALL TO ACTION to ensure that our nation’s fertile farmland will be affordable to our next generation of such farmers.

About the director:
Chuck Schultz’s body of work examines socio-economic issues confronting our nation. Producer/director The Last Crop (2016) Jeff and Annie Main’s struggle to ensure their family farm’s future personalizes a story echoed on farms across our nation. Executive Producer David A. Rangelli’s award winning documentary The Calling (2009), three individuals called to serve their faith. Co-creator/producer 5 Days in July (2007) a short film which revisits the 1967 Newark Riots/Rebellion; co-producer/director Five Days in July (2007), a NPR drama written by playwright Tracey Scott Wilson; producer/director The Rural Studio, a co-production with ITVS chronicles the extraordinary work of architect Samuel Mockbee and his Auburn University students; and co-producer of A Day at a Time, a portrait of immigrant parents raising twin girls with cerebral palsy in New York City. ITVS, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New Jersey and Alabama Humanities have supported his work that has been broadcast on PBS, NHK Japan and viewed in museums worldwide.
