A film produced by Michael Henriquez as part of his Masters in Science Communication in Natural History Filmmaking at Otago University, Dunedin, New Zealand.
Plough! is a 25 minute documentary about a community of people for whom ploughing is more than an agricultural practice. For them it is a hobby, a sport, and a passion. They devote years of their lives to practicing and competing in regional and national matches in hopes of qualifying to the annual World Ploughing Championships.
The 57th World Ploughing Champions are being held in Methven, New Zealand in April of 2010. Teams from 30 countries are arriving with their tractors and ploughs to compete each other in hopes of winning the coveted Golden Plough.
