Agrarian Utopia, a 2009 film by Uruphong Raksasad.

121 minutes. In Thai with English subtitles.

Agrarian Utopia follows two Thai families who agree to farm in the traditional way for one year. After facing seizure of their own lands, the two families found themselves farming together on the same field, hoping to get through just another rice-farming season like every year. But no matter how much the world is evolving, or how much the country is going through economic, political and social changes, they still cannot grasp that ideology of happiness.
