synopsis

Sisco, Cecilia, Gibbo and Armelle work as hired crop pickers. Along with other seasonal workers, they sleep on the farmers’ land before moving on to the next farm. Their irregular worktime depends on the cyclic changes of the weather. For a while, they pick strawberries in Denmark, and then move on to vine in France or oranges in Spain. Even if they find themselves on the society’s edge, with their nomadic way of life condemned by some and adored by others, they remain relatively free and independent. And it counts both in work and money. Precarity, a daily object of struggle of others, is their very own life style. They do not know what tomorrow will bring for them, yet they are still left with a lot of time for dreams and plays.

“We believe that a shift in certain paradigms is necessary in our society, especially regarding the way of being with others. We believe that pain, agitation, insecurity, weakness are not feelings to be avoided. The crisis must be be embraced, lived.” (Angrisani Giulia, Mattia Petullà)
