Ever since his film debut at the age of 13 (Canary Bananas, 1935), Richard Leacock has believed in showing the viewer the truest possible record of events. The film is about his father’s banana plantation and was made with a little help from Polly Church and Noel Florence.

This film is part of the program Films by Richard Leacock.
