The Screen Guide

After World War II more land was released to agriculture in South Western Australia in just three decades than in the previous 130 years of white settlement. 'A million acres a year' was the catch-cry in what became one of the heaviest assaults on 'virgin' land in Australian history. A MILLION ACRES A YEAR tells the story of how a region now recognised as one of the top 25 biological hotspots on the planet was opened up for broadacre farming, unleashing an environmental and social nightmare. Farmers who were caught up in this rush to subdue the earth, question whether traditional farming belongs here at all. They describe their change of heart and outline an ethics for agriculture.
