Haymaking Time

The documentary continues the style of the former collaboration films ("The Ploughman's Fatigue", "Once You Mock the Field..." etc.). Filmmakers Enn Säde and Jüri Müür thoroughly discuss the problems of storing hay in the collective farms of Estonian SSR. Instead of voiceover, the authors of the film appear on the screen and comment on various themes.
