Wellfleet Preservation Hall is delighted to present Farmer of the Year, directed & produced by part-time Truro residents Vince O’Connell and Kathy Swanson.

Kathy and Vince will be in attendance to introduce the film and perform a post-screening Q & A.

This narrative feature just sold out at the Woods Hole Film Festival and has been receiving critical and audience acclaim nationwide since its release in 2018.

“Swanson’s screenplay avoids sentimentality, achieving instead the kind of gentle, humanistic comedy we rarely see these days in movie theaters” – Margot Harrison in SevenDaysVT and Rotten Tomatoes


When widowed eighty-three year old Minnesota farmer Hap Anderson (Barry Corbin) sells the family farm he finds himself marginalized and adrift. Motivated by the possibility of showing up with an old flame and impressing his old army buddies he sets out to attend his 65th WWII reunion with his unemployed granddaughter in a dilapidated Winnebago. Encountering oddball tourist attractions and eccentric characters, they find themselves in seemingly impossible situations with only each other for support. From finding a place that will cash a Travelers Cheque to enjoying a cup of instant coffee they begin to understand and appreciate each other as individuals while discovering that their issues are ageless.
