Morgan Schmidt-Feng's 2015 film "On Her Own" is one of the many acclaimed films in this year's Hot Docs Film Festival. It takes a good long look at the lives of Nancy Prebilich and her family. The farm has been in the Prebilich family for 5 generations and with the sudden death of both parents, keeping it that way becomes a monumental challenge. When the level of dedication to the work necessary becomes an issue, this stakes begin to rise and within their challenges we see those faced by farmers across North America.
"On Her Own" plays tonight at the ROM Cinema at 7 pm, at the TIFF Light Box on April 29th at 4:30 pm, and at the Scotia Bank Theatre on May 1 at 9:15 pm. Tickets are available here.
