Turn Here Sweet Corn
POV Season 4
Feature Film | 07/09/1991

The camera moves through a Minnesota corn field and finds a photograph of a suburban tract clothes-pinned to a cornstalk. Layered with visual and emotional paradoxes, Turn Here Sweet Corn searches for meaning beyond cliches and nostalgia, as a family farm is lost to speculative suburban real estate developers.
