Director: Marianna Economou
72 minutes

The Thessalian plain surrounded by mountains has always provided Greek farmers with food. However, the recent financial crisis has also left deep scars in this region. In Elias, a village of 33 inhabitants, two cousins seek to revitalize their hometown by developing their organic tomato cultivation. Using Richard Wagner’s compositions and traditional Greek music, Alexandros and Christos want to create an optimal environment for growing their organic tomatoes by playing music over speakers in the fields.

Director Marianna Economou underlines the importance and value of human relationships as well as humor in this bittersweet, surreal story about reinventing oneself in times of crisis and the power of the collective.

Following the Walk-in Cinema screening on Thursday, December 8 at 17.30, the film will be streamed online between December 12-18 via
