Selling Out

Canada, 1972 (MIFF 1973)

Director: Tadeusz Jaworski

Centred on the public auctioning of the farm and personal belongings of a farmer on Canada's Prince Edward Island, the film makes provocative and highly political statements on such matters as the loss of Canadian economy and heritage to foreign capital, the social and psychological effects of the disappearance of the private farm, and the alienation of she old.
