Dir. Fergal Ward, Ireland 2017, 85 min
For years, the farmer Thomas Reid has been locked in a grueling battle with his neighbor, U.S. microchip manufacturer Intel. The multinational wants to expand and has its eye on Reid’s land. Eager to boost employment in the region, the Irish authorities are doing their utmost to force Reid into a sale. But the farmer has no intention of leaving his 300-year-old ancestral home, where he lives alone, surrounded by cows and chickens. His house is crammed with hoarded junk and he appears to live in chaos. Nevertheless, Fergal Ward’s documentary shows this tenacious eccentric to be a formidable opponent of the system.
