This Filthy Earth

A tragic tale of rural passion and survival, This Filthy Earth is inspired by Emile Zola’s novel La Terre and John Berger’s Pig Earth. The film tells the story of sisters Kath and Francine, whose lives are disrupted by two men – a brutal villager greedy for the girls’ land and a gentle stranger who offers the possibility of escape. Amidst a landscape of rural hardship and a community consumed with superstition, events unfurl which threaten their sibling bond.
