88. NFB — Country Threshing — 30 min
The day of the big stationary threshing machine is almost over, pushed into obscurity by the combine harvester. But there are still parts of Canada where crops are gathered in the old—fashioned way as the men worked out in the fields and the women managed the kitchen. This film records, in the Eastern Townships of Québec, sights and sounds that not long ago were common to most rural parts of Canada.
