December 21, 2022 - MUBI, the global distributor, streaming service and production company, is pleased to announce that Carla Simón’s (Summer 1993) Alcarràs will open in selected theatres in Canada from January 13, 2023 followed by an exclusive streaming release on MUBI from February 24, 2023.
The film won the Golden Bear award at this year’s Berlinale and was nominated for Best European Film, Best European Screenwriter, and the European University Film Award at the 2022 European Film Awards. It was also selected to represent Spain at the 2023 Academy Awards® for Best International Feature.
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. For the first time, they face an uncertain future and risk losing more than their home.
Carla Simón’s second feature, following the international success of Summer 1993 (2017) is inspired by her own farming family from Alcarràs in the Catalonian region of Spain. All members of the extended Solé family, young and old alike, are played by non-professional actors speaking the Catalan dialect specific to the area.
ALCÀRRAS WILL BE RELEASED IN SELECT THEATRES IN CANADA ON JANUARY 13 2023
AND AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON MUBI FROM FEBRUARY 24 2023
