Tile Drainage ("Täckdikar'n")                                                                                                                                                   

A movie was shot in 2009, 2010 and 2012 in Hålanda and Gräfsnäs in western Sweden, documenting the work of two very old brothers working with a tile drainage machine built in 1957. It had been in continuous use by the older brother since then. However, since 2010 the machine is in a museum. So this is (agri)cultural history, well known to all farmers around here and well worth to tell to many others.

Here is the vintage machine:

And below is a clip from the brothers' work in the fields (actually, our fields) in 2009. I hope to do the final editing of the movie in early 2013.
