The Years of the Locust (1969)

Film details


Locust plagues go in cycles and 1969 was a bad year. There have been big advances in methods of location and control of developing locust swarms, but shortage of money for the international organisation hampers work and local wars prevent the following of swarms when they are on the wing. This film is a graphic description of the world of locust control.
