UK, 1969 (MIFF 1971, Programme D)
Director: Edward McConnell
Lying forgotten in a farmyard, undisturbed by the susurration of summer flies, is an old traction engine, a fallen giant of the steam age. A small boy comes exploring. His imagination takes us on a journey to a great gathering of traction engines, all moving ponderously over the countryside. The screen erupts into multiple images of pleasure.
