LAND OF PLENTY

Denmark, 1983 (MIFF 1983)

Director: Morten Arnfred

The film describes how the economical, social and agricultural problems influence a Danish farmer's existence. In his struggle to cope with the high interest rates, Knud stakes everything he owns on a hyper-effective production of pigmeat. Midway in his project, he has to admit that he is not only defeated economically, but he has also let his family down.
