Cindy Jansen / NL, 2020 / 80 min.

On the Scottish island of Muck, an elderly farmer potters about with his cows while his son does the real work. Documentary maker Cindy Jansen empathetically records the life of a man who has become one with his environment and stubbornly tries to ignore changes to his life.

There are still sparsely populated areas out there where time seems to have stood still. Muck, an island off the Scottish coast, is one such place. This is where Dutch filmmaker Cindy Jansen’s documentary about dairy farmer Lawrence MacEwen is situated. The 80 year old feels the end of his working life approaching and reflects on the past in moving journal excerpts.
