Ballarat Film Society – Alcarràs

Access info

The Soles are peach farmers who have occupied their land for generations on the basis of a handshake deal with the original owners. The sighting of a looming mechanical crane ushers into their lives an uncertain peach season and future.

An ensemble drama with six prominent characters is set in a lush Catalan setting where the camera settles on an eloquent focus on the rhythms of family life and playtime as the young family witnesses the intrusion of modernity on their traditions. Father Rogelio retreats into old customs, and teens Mariona and Roger take on new responsibilities that play out in the midst of generational and economic change in Spain. The film is inspired by the Director’s own family experiences. Winner of the Golden Bear for Best Film at the 2022 Berlin International Film Festival. Palace Films.

Catalan, Spain/Italy/France, 2022, 120 min. Dir: Carla Simón.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
