Stories of the Harvester

Documentary Film

Excerpt from documentary film, Stories of the Harvester, a companion documentary that explores the development of harvester combines in Argentina’s fertile pampas region during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. This region was home to numerous domestic harvester and farm machinery companies. Through interviews, archival footage, and narration, the film illustrates how the rise of the combine industry during the heyday of import substitution also shaped a sense of community and identity that is still strong today.
