Hay Season

German Democratic Republic, 1972 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Gitta Nickel

The film illustrates portraits of people who work at an agricultural co-operative and live in the country. The story deals with a few people at two different times, by using documentary film material made at a difficult time of development for the members of the co-op "Helmut Just", eight years ago, and pictures shot recently over a span of five months until early summer.

Silver Dove Prize, Leipzig Documentary Film Festival.
