"ALCARRÀS draws its sucker-punch of shuddering power from the ambient details that lend that home its history." - David Ehrlich, Indiewire
"This has all the hallmarks of a very specific film with emotionally wide appeal, a thoughtful essay which can also rattle and hum." - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
Winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale Festival, ALCARRÀS is an effortless, lived-in portrait of the Solé family, who for generations have spent summers harvesting peaches on their farm in Alcarràs, Spain. The land, however, is not their own, and when the threat of eviction and the destruction of their orchard looms, the family’s future and all they have built together is jeopardized. Inspired by her own childhood in Catalonia, Carla Simón weaves a delicate, unhurried, and beautifully observed narrative of past vs. future and progress vs. tradition.
