Among the trees, young women and men working the summer harvest develop new feelings, flirt, try to understand each other, find - and flee - deeper connections.
The Garden Cinema View:
A quiet and quotidian film that belies a deeper reflection on the hopes and anxieties of seasonal fruit pickers in Tunisia. The fig orchard is a place of physical labour and shaded respite from the Summer heat; but it also stands as a performance space where cultural anxieties are played out metonymically. A gently remarkable film which gives a platform and lends an ear to a collection of characters living on the margins.
