The Regal Cinema’s World Cinema series presents the Spanish-Italian film Alcarràs.
In the small village of Alcarràs in Catalonia, the peach farmers of the Solé family spend every summer together picking fruit from their orchard. But when new plans arise to install solar panels and cut down trees, the members of this tight-knit group suddenly face eviction – and the loss of far more than their home.
Winner of the Golden Bear at Berlinale, the sophomore film from Carla Simón (Summer 1993) is a sun-dappled, deeply moving ensemble portrait of the countryside and a community’s unbreakable bonds.
This film will be shown in Catalan and Spanish with English subtitles.
“Carla Simón’s superb film about a farm in decline is proof that fiction is sometimes the most powerful way to uncover the truth”
The Telegraph ★★★★★
“A lament for a world slipping out of reach is brought invigoratingly to life by a vividly drawn cast of characters”
“Deeply intelligent, humane drama”
The Guardian ★★★★
