Carla Simón’s award-winning story of a peach farmer struggling to make ends meet asks many important questions about our relationship with the land and the human cost of progress. Capitalism never looked more brutal than in this new Catalan-language movie about an extended family of fruit farmers in the town of Alcarràs, people whose unhappiness and dysfunction are created by market forces.

“This is a really shrewd, empathic and subtle movie which engulfs you in its dust and sweat and heat.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
