The Farmer and The Hipster

Kurt Langbein, 97 minutes, documentary, German with English subtitles, 2022, Austria. 

The farmer Christian Bachler takes up arms on Facebook against the eloquent journalist and Falter editor-in-chief Florian Klenk. Bachler calls him an "arrogant bobo-in-chief". He accuses the bobo (an Austrian slang word for a Viennese bouji hipster) of ignoring the situation of farmers: "Get off your bobo steed and come for a practical training". 250,000 people watch the video. Klenk comes and gets to know Bachler's world: an alternative farm in the Styrian mountains with cows, alpine pigs, yaks, geese and chicken, a kind of alpine Bullerbü. Klenk learns that a bank wants to auction off the farm... A modern fairy tale.

The film won the German Environmental and Sustainability Film Award at the Nature Vision Film Festival 2022.
