Nice film showing the beetroot harvest in Holland - mostly women at work.
Film about the beetroot harvest in Holland.
M/S of several women in large hats harvesting beetroot by hand. Closer shot of the women as they dig the beetroot from the ground and cut off the root.
Down by the canal the girls play a gentle game of "grab" Panning shot of boats laden with beetroot by the canal edge. Large mechanical cranes are used to pick up large amounts of the crop (it looks like men at work though rather than women.) "Mountains of Beet... Can you beat it?" asks the intertitle. L/S of huge piles of beetroot.
C/U of woman holding two large beetroot. She laughs.
Note: nice footage of women at work - looks pretty tough.
