Winner of the 72nd Berlin Film Festival “Land of Alcarraz” will appear in Kion

Date: March 1, 2024 Time: 06:24:59

Carla Simone’s Land of Alcarraz will premiere on Kion Online Cinema. The film took first prize at the 72nd Berlin Film Festival. Simone made a subtle film about the fragility of tomorrow. Tierra de Alcarraz will be available to online cinema subscribers on May 20.

As the story goes, while the children play carefree among the peach orchards, the lives of the adults fall apart. The father of a large family, Rogelio, faces the fact that the house and the hectares of fertile land do not belong to him, the land was given to him many years ago only by word of mouth. The real owner of it has already sold the land to a green energy company ready to cover the entire area with solar panels.

Carla Simón lost her parents at a very young age, and the girl was given to be raised by aunts and uncles who lived in the same town of Alcarraz. Therefore, the image of her is based in part on her biography, the stories of her relatives and friends of her family. Also one of the literary milestones of Carla Simone and her co-writer Arnau Vilaro was the work The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov. Although the business of the director’s loved ones is booming, this film shows an anti-capitalist approach to work and criticizes the system that is killing the family business.

The casting of “Tierra de Alcarraz” lasted about a year and all the roles of Karla Simone were chosen by non-professional actors, authentic peasants from Alcarras. Thus, the film was starred by Josep Abad, Jordi Pujol Dolset, Anna Otin, Albert Bosch and Xenia Roset. Many of the actors received critical acclaim.

Let’s remember that at the end of April the biographical drama “Caravaggio’s Shadow” directed by Michele Placido appeared on Kion. This is an action-packed story about the life of a rowdy artist who found models for his masterpieces on the streets. We talk about it in more detail here.
