ALCARRÀS Trailer: Carla Simón’s Golden Bear Winner is Spain’s Official Oscar Entry

As 2023 is around the corner, there are many acclaimed new films to look forward to. One of them is writer-director Carla Simón’s Berlinale Golden Bear winner Alcarràs. Simón made a huge impression a few years ago with her autobiographical coming-of-age tale Summer 1993. Now she follows it up with a slice-of-life look at a large peach-farming family as they face eviction and risk losing their livelihoods. Like her feature debut, she also explores life through the eyes of young children and how they process/experience the whole ordeal. The official Spanish Oscar entry was also screened at this year’s New York Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival. Mubi has set it for a January 6 theatrical release before launching it on their streaming service February 24.

Here’s an official synopsis:

In a small village in Spain, the peach farmers of the Solé family spend every summer together picking fruit from their orchard. But when plans arise to install solar panels and cut down trees, the members of this tight-knit group suddenly face eviction – and the loss of far more than their home.

Watch the trailer below. In theaters January 6.
