Come On Children

Come On Children is a documentary film by Allan King. In the early 1970s, ten Toronto teenagers (five boys and five girls) leave behind parents, school, and all other authority figures to live on a farm for ten weeks. Young John Hamilton writes and sings the opening song, ‘A Farm Named Froo’, introducing each of teenagers who are building a life together on the farm. Lots of smoke & snow. Also, see teenage Alex Lifeson Živojinović (RUSH guitarist) cooking a pot of something for his farm fam.

Watch the opening song for Come on Children ‘A Farm Named Froo’.

Come on Children is available via the Criterion Collection.
