LUXFILMLAB - ALCARRÀS
Join us at Ciné Utopia Wednesday, October 5th at 7:00 PM for this month's LuxFilmLab for a screening of the last Berlin golden Bear: Alcarràs from Carla Simón
As far as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking the peaches from their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain. But this year’s crop could be their last, as they face eviction. The new plans for the land include cutting down the peach trees and installing solar panels, which causes a rift within the large, tight-knit family. They face an uncertain future for the first time and risk losing more than their home.
On the first Wednesday of every month, LuxFilmLab - a joint initiative by Luxembourg City Film Festival and Kinepolis - highlights one feature film, chosen in cooperation by LuxFilmFest's Artistic Committee and the Kinepolis programme team. A member of the Artistic Committee introduces the special LuxFilmLab screenings, aiming to support films whose release dates didn't allow for them to be selected for the Festival itself but whose artistic qualities would likely have led to their inclusion in the LuxFilmFest line-up.
*LuxFilmFest isn't involved in the commercial aspects of these screenings. Kinepolis set access to the screenings and ticket prices.
