Weiberleut, Austria, 2009, 105 min, Digi Beta, Gender
Even nowadays in the traditionally very family-structured and male dominated agricultural business, it is not always easy to lead a farm as a woman living without a life partner. Be it the acceptance in society or the question, how to manage all the challenging physical work, which on other farms is done by two or more people. Driving around with their tractors, handling the cattle and doing a lot of manual work, the six portrayed Austrian women farmers manage the obstacles in their lives with quite different styles.
