A poetic study of the passing of a way of life and the clash between tradition and industry, ALCARRÀS is a luscious ensemble drama soaked in sun and nostalgia. In a small village in Spain, the Sole family spends every summer picking peaches from their orchards. Confronted with an eviction notice and plans to replace their groves with solar panels, conflicts simmering within the family rise to the surface. Carla Simón (SUMMER 1993, HIFF 2017) returns with a dazzling new feature about a family on the brink of irrevocable change, which earned the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. This MUBI release is Spain’s official selection for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards
