The Golden Harvest

The Golden Harvest

21st TDF: World Premiere

The love story that binds the people of the Mediterranean to their olive trees dates back 6,000 years and is, still, going strong. It is a complicated romance constantly evolving in a region that includes some of the poorest and most conflicted areas of Europe and the Middle East. A cinematic journey that reminds us that, sometimes, what we passionately seek in far away, unexpected places might be right in front of us. The olive tree, precious and enduring, unravels a tale as old as time.
