Harvest (2013)

An abnormal phenomenon occurs in an olive grove when one of the trees suddenly starts wildly shaking its branches, provoking an uprising. As the natural protest heightens, the riot squad thunders through the landscape, seeking to suppress the rebellion. This film is inspired by ancient methods of olive harvesting, which combined cultivation and aggression.

 “Bringing together artists from the worlds of dance and cinema to collaborate is an extraordinary format that calls for both artists to invent and perform a dialectic language in a joint working process that is much more than a documented performance or a dance piece with visuals.”
