Harvest

Australia, 1980 (MIFF 1981, Australian Social Documentaries)

Director: Roger Plant

A documentary about a dairy farm intended to explode some of the myths about the pace and texture of country life. In particular the haymaking season is a period of frantic energy when the farmer relies totally on his mechanical aids and lives in constant unspoken fear of the weather.
