Rang 5

118 minutes, 1993

The tremendous task of Quebec’s farmers, who have the job of feeding the greater population of the cities, is sensitively described over four seasons. There is nothing amusing about the unappreciated reality of those having this burdensome responsibility. Between the demands of the GATT and the organic revolution, many farmers, whether family farmers or small/medium businesses, have to do whatever it takes to survive. The beautifully painted chronicle allows us to share the toil and hopes, the trials and victories of these remarkably strong men and women. Farmers are given the all-too-rare opportunity to speak.
