Barjarg – a WWOOF-umentary.

May 28, 2015

Barjarg is the latest documentary film to have been made by WWOOFer, Kris Barnes. Currently studying Film & Television Production at York St John University, Kris has managed to capture the feel of being with a host family featured in this 12 minute short.

The film focuses mainly on a family who left London to set-up a smallholding in the Southern Uplands of Scotland and lets them tell their story whilst we are treated to some breathtakingly beautiful photography and soundtrack, there is also some very clever time-lapse photography as WWOOFers and host work at erecting a new polytunnel.

Watch the film here [where you can also find more work by Kris]: https://vimeo.com/128597502
