Susan Froemke and John Hoffman’s documentary Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman–premiering at Sundance–is a cinema verité piece that captures three environmental conservationists with very close ties to the land they work. Froemke and Hoffman hired three cinematographers–Bob Richman (An Inconvenient Truth), Buddy Squires (The Central Park Five) and Thorsten Thielow (30 for 30)–for the job.
“I suspect that John and Susan were looking for people with extensive vérité experience along with a strong portfolio of landscape work,” Squires tells Filmmaker Magazine. “RFF is a film that requires DPs with an intuitive feel for the land and the people. Hopefully we succeeded in doing justice to these individuals’ stories and the land they love.”
