About the Film 

Languages: French, Galician, and Spanish

An expatriate French couple operates an organic farm in the Spanish countryside. However, their earnest enthusiasm reeks of patronizing privilege to the handful of “hill people” families who have toiled on the land for generations. Tensions between locals and foreigners boil over in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Nanovic Faculty Fellow Pedro Aguilera-Mellado, assistant professor of Spanish, Iberian studies, and concurrent faculty of film studies, will introduce the film.
