For over eighty years the Solé family has farmed in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain’s Catalonia region. But as they prepare to spend the summer picking this year’s crop of peaches, they find themselves facing eviction and an uncertain future. Carla Simón’s follow-up to her stunning debut Summer 1993 won the top prize at the 2022 Berlin Film Festival.

Quotes:

“★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Carla Simón’s superb film about a farm in decline is proof that fiction is sometimes the most powerful way to uncover the truth.”

– Tim Robey, The Daily Telegraph, Berlin International Film Festival 2022

“Catalan writer-director Carla Simón confirms the promise of her debut Summer 1993 in this poignant, rippling study of an extended family being forced off their farm. … a beautifully observed, richly inhabited ensemble drama.”

– Guy Lodge, Variety, Berlin International Film Festival 2022
