Film: El lugar de las fresas
March 30, 2017
Lina, now in her seventies, has always been a farmer, going at dawn to Turin’s Porta Palazzo, Europe’s biggest open air market, to sell her vegetables and strawberries. Her life has always been “home, church, and work,” until she encounters a young Moroccan immigrant looking for a job. The filmmaker’s documentation of their evolving lives and relationship over the next several years addresses themes of immigration, globalization, and transformation, as well as the enduring value of working with the land. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
