Show times are 7PM and 9PM. Tickets are $5.00 and are only available at the door. A portion of the ticket proceeds helps support “Feed My Starving Children” a non-profit organization that provides food to nearly 70 countries around the world.
Producer/Director Conrad Weaver will be attending along with custom harvester, Jim Deibert, a resident of Colby and one of the main subjects featured in the film. Posters from the film will be available for free while they last, and there will be a meet and greet with the producer after each showing of the film.
The GREAT AMERICAN WHEAT HARVEST is a documentary film that tells the story of hard-working custom harvesters who travel from the heart of Texas to the Canadian border harvesting the wheat that feeds our Great Country and the World. Most harvesters come right through Kansas, and many important scenes in the film are shot in the Colby, KS area.
The story is dramatic as well as inspiring. It’s compelling as it shares the challenges that are now threatening that way of life passed on from generation from generation. Much has changed and from a historical perspective. It is important to document the lifestyle and heritage before it is lost.
The film had a National Premiere in Washington, DC on March 25, National Ag Day, and is currently on a “Heart of America Tour.” The film has screened in four states already and is being picked up by independent theaters around the country.
