Alcarràs is coming home

MUBI, the global distributor, streaming service and production company is delighted to announce the DVD and Blu-ray release of Carla Simón’s award-winning Alcarràs on 27 March 2023.

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.

Alcarràs won the Golden Bear award at last year’s Berlinale and is Carla Simón’s second feature, following the international success of Summer 1993 (2017). The film is inspired by her own farming family from Alcarràs in the Catalonian region of Spain and 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.

Alcarràs received its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival 2022 and will be released on DVD & Blu-ray from 27 March 2023.

  • Introduction with Carla Simón
  • Q&A with director Carla Simón
  • “Giving Shape to Alcarràs” Documentary
