ON THE BOGS is a short documentary about three friends in their 20s harvesting cranberries on South Shore of Massachusetts in October, 2016. The film shares not only the beauty of a cranberry harvest, but also digs deeper into their intention behind the choice to farm.
Isabel Stearns, 25 years old, grew up on a cranberry bog and is a third generation grower. She guides us through the film sharing her knowledge and love for cranberries. Anthony Brogno, 23 years old, has no previous connection to cranberries. He shares his experience of taking a leap of faith to help Isabel’s family for the harvest. Nick Maribett, 28 years old, was raised on a permaculture vegetable and blueberry farm. He provides insight on experiencing the local cranberry industry. Together they share their journeys and build community not only on the bogs, but with each other.
