Recommend this film

In the midst of the world’s biggest fruit and vegetable garden, the so called ‚Mar del plástico’, lies the Andalusian village of San Agustín. For the local planters this season’s atmosphere is prophesying crisis: A mysterious virus threatens the harvest, bacteria attacks the plants and the authorities are after the illegal workforce in the greenhouses. Planter José Maria would rather choose to live among vegetables than people anyway, while the Crespo family, who seems to belong to a different time era, tries to get by with vegetables, breeding goats and a giant compost pile. This is all part of the daily routine for Paco, the village tavern’s barman, who knows all of his customers’ problems.

San Agustín takes an out of the ordinary look at the 'Mar del plástico' - Europe's most important producer and vendor of fruit and vegetables - as it fights with it's own existence once more during the cucumber crisis of 2011. Two families, a village tavern and a lot of vegetables. One extraordinary harvest season in nine chapters.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
