A central Illinois farmer whose produce is a fixture of the Evanston Farmers Market is the subject of a documentary available Friday.
“Seasons of Change on Henry’s Farm” focuses on the 25-acre vegetable farm run by Henry Brockman in Congerville, Illinois. In the course of the film, Brockman takes a sabbatical with his wife in her native Japan, and in their absence the farm is disrupted by heavy rainfall.
“Seasons of Change” will be available for streaming at siskelfilmcenter.org. The 5 p.m. Sunday screening will include commentary by Brockman and the Chicago-based director, Ines Sommer.
Brockman’s sister, Terra, wrote a book about the family business, “The Seasons on Henry’s Farm,” that was a James Beard Award finalist in 2010.
