When filmmaker Oscar Harding’s grandfather passed away in the rural English county of Somerset, his family inherited an extraordinary videotape – a feature-length home movie from neighbor Charles Carson, which can best be described as “Monty Python meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” But there’s so much more to the man than his bizarre videos – Charles was an inventor, an outsider artist, and a pioneer of death positivity. Charles’ life and work are examined by those who knew him best, as well as a whole new generation of fans who have been inspired by the legacy he left behind, including Executive Producers Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher from The Found Footage Festival. A Life on the Farm is an exploration and celebration of Charles Carson and his movies, rescued from obscurity, which present a moving and laugh-out-loud document of a time and place in danger of being lost to history. (Dir. by Oscar Harding, 2022, USA, 75 mins., Not Rated)
