How To Screen

 

THE PICKERS

A Documentary film by Elke Sasse, 80 minutes, Greece, Italy, Spain, Nepal, Portugal,
German and English subtitles. Other language versions available upon request.
5.1 Mix, DCP.

The film documents the living and working conditions of migrants who work harvesting our fruit and vegetables from Europe’s fields: Olives in Greece, Oranges in Italy, Strawberries in Spain, Blueberries in Portugal – Exploitation is the rule rather than the exception.
There is another way though.  This is shown by Fair Oranges from Calabria. 

The film delves into the worlds of the pickers. Backgrounds and solutions can be discussed in a subsequent conversation with experts.
