Time to Gather

Em Ano de Safra

26th TIDF: International Premiere

Cork oaks perspire, birds whistle and ants make their way. A cycle of cork extraction in a village in central Portugal. A father and a daughter in a technological clash. A friend, a vegetable garden. A family of cork extractors and gatherers with their axer, cloth rings and hopes. The portrait of a changing community. A meditation on the landscape that produces the most cork. Βridges between the past and the future, challenging the crisis of tradition of a system entirely dependent on human activity. A cycle of cork extraction reveals the pressures and changes both the territory and community face.
