  • Short Summary

    US farmers revolt against mortgage companies to save their farms during the depression.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. How is it all going to end? Once rich and prosperous farmers of Iowa have to organise revolt to save their homes from mortgage holders."

    Iowa, United States of America (USA).

    Group of people stand out in open air listening to man speak. Looks like a demonstration.

    CU of man in crowd talking.

    Various shots of meetings in farm yards - it is very cold and snow is on the ground. At one of the meetings a man in the crowd is dragged away.

    CU of farmer speaking to camera.

    N.B. Presumably these farmers are being hit by the depression and are finding it impossible to pay their mortgages.
