This film documents the activities of grasshopper farms in Uganda. According to local legend, they land to Earth from the Moon. Farmers’ hand-assembled machines catch herds of grasshoppers and take them to the market to be sold. This process marks a strange relationship between man and nature, based on both harmony and destruction. A story about one single field and, at the same time, about the whole world.
