The Earth and its Peoples: Food for Paris Markets - Rural Northern France (1949)

Bid on the complete, original 16mm print on eBay through 11/3/2006!
United World Films produced the ethnology series The Earth and its Peoples from 1948-1957. This is one of the first films in the series highlighting the food economy in Northern France that all ends up in the markets of Paris! Amazing footage here! A wonderful slice of French economic history!

Here are just a handful of amazing moments in this very hard-to-find original print!





Note: The following clip was taken directly from the original 16mm print and has been edited to a fraction of the film's original length.
