Documentary 1943 12 mins


A stook is a group of sheaves of grain stood on end in a field, which can be stacked in ingenious and skilful fashion, in barn or field, to preserve and maintain the nutritional value of the grain. Some of these ambitious stacks are shaped like cottages, and the local thatcher is even brought in to complete the roof. Director Rosanne Hunter made at least six films, all in the 1940s, however little is known of her life and career.
