  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cineviews in Brief". (number 47)

    New motor boats replace gondolas on Grand Canal, Venice (Italy) and rye grass harvesting in Bavaria (Germany).

    High angled shot of motor powered river boat. M/S of man on deck looking in motor hold. Various shots of motor and rotary blades which power boat from beneath hull. Various shots of boat going along canals, we see it go beneath a bridge (looks like Bridge of Sighs).

    Scenic L/S of Bavarian Alps in summer. M/S of farm workers harvesting rye grass with scythes, view of mountains in background. Various shots of farm workers at work - young, muscular men with bare chests and women with headscarves. Various shots of man pulling cart up hillside, several children help by pushing. Various shots of farm workers using pitch forks to load grass onto carts / hay wagons. Various shots of loaded hay wagon being pulled to barn. Very idyllic.
