The Days and the Year
Work and everyday life on a small-scale farmstead in the Waldviertel, Lower Austria. The couple living there has consistently opted for a "small-scale" way of farming, considers their animals as living beings and the soil as its own cosmos. The possible motto of both films, read by John Berger: "A sequence of pictures offers no verbal key. That's why the visual is so amazing, why memory, based on the visual, is freer than the mind."
