The Little Acres

Top of page

In Québec today many small farms are being sold at auction, victims of high prices and unprofitable methods. Once these little acres gave independence and a fair livelihood to father, son and grandson. Now, faced with bankruptcy, farmers are leaving one by one. A vivid documentary of changing times, this film tells the poignant story of men who must leave their petits arpents.

1963, 23 min 45 s
