Writer/director Carla Simón’s eagerly anticipated follow up to her debut breakthrough Summer 1993 is a personal and beautifully observed ensemble drama about a family of Catalonian farmers who, after generations harvesting the same land, face eviction and an uncertain future. 

For as long as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking the peaches from their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain. But this year’s crop will be their last. The owner of the land is deceased, and his grandson and heir wants them to abandon the farming business so he can uproot the trees and install solar panels. 

So as the family comes together for the harvest, they find themselves at odds as to how they should go on, and risk losing more than their home... 

Inspired by Simón’s own family story, Alcarràs is a story of relationships and the importance of unity, and tradition versus change. A huge critical and audience success in Spain, this remarkable new film solidifies Simón’s status as one of contemporary cinema’s most compelling voices.
