When a large family of peach farmers hear that the landowner is going to sell the land to place solar panels this sows panic, resignation and a fighting spirit. Carla Simón’s intimate portrait of farming life raises questions about progress. Winner of a Golden Bear at the Berlinale.
Children, parents and grandparents lead a seemingly idyllic life amidst the peach trees on a large farm in the Catalan countryside. But ancient traditions are abruptly uprooted when the landowner decides to sell the land and tear up the trees to make way for a gigantic field of solar panels.
