Into the Shade
Into the Shade, describes the way of life under the tents in the harvesting of shade tobacco and the industry itself in the Connecticut River Valley.
it is about the local farmers and migrant workers. While coming from places with very different socioeconomic backgrounds and cultural traditions, they become a collective force under the tents and in the barns. The cultivation of premium tobacco leaves used for cigar wrappers become their shared responsibility.
