Farmer Angel Network sponsored a free movie at Center Cinema on Saturday, February 11th. About 70 people came to see A Man Called Otto. FAN is pleased to have sponsored this movie to continue our efforts in building community, fellowship and breaking the stigma around mental health. It was great to see so many join us at this touching movie. FAN offered resources including info on the national crisis helpline, 9-8-8, and resources specific for farmers and the ag community. FAN Board Members, Amanda Coorough and Christy Wehler, introduced the movie and were available for discussion after the movie.
"Based on the # 1 New York Times bestseller 'A Man Called Ove,' A Man Called Otto tells the story of Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), a grump who no longer sees purpose in his life following the loss of his wife. Otto is ready to end it all, but his plans are interrupted when a lively young family moves in next door, and he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol. She challenges him to see life differently, leading to an unlikely friendship that turns his world around. A heartwarming and funny story about love, loss, and life, A Man Called Otto shows that family can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places."
