Carl Theodor Dreyer – Vandet på landet AKA Water from the land (1946)

Sharply critical film about rural water pollution in the Jutland countryside district of medical officer Jens Jensen. Situations of everyday water use are illustrated by graphic representations of a well and surrounding soil layers. A new well is correctly constructed in the farmyard.

The Farming Organisations, but above all the National Board of Health, killed the film because of its critical (read: realistic) depiction of water-well conditions in the country.
