Wondering why times are missing?

Hybrid

This fascinating, eccentric documentary reads a bit like a collaboration between Errol Morris and David Lynch. The subject is iconoclastic agricultural guru Milford Beeghly, who pioneered important breakthroughs in the field of corn hybridization. Ever wondered about the sexual habits of the American corn plant? Well, this lovingly rendered, amusingly shot feature will certainly answer all your questions. Beeghly, who turned 100 during the making of the film, is an amazing subject for study, never veering from his utter fascination with corn and corn growing. Double-featured with Changin' Old Ways. Part of the Rural Route Film Festival. 92 minutes
