When Tomatoes Met Wagner (Greece 2019, 72 min.)
Director: Marianna Economou
The Greek village of Elias, hit hard by the economic crisis, is about to die out. The two cousins Christos and Alexandros together with the grandmas of the village decide to try their luck with organic tomato cultivation. The secret recipe for their tomato sauce is the music of Wagner, which is played on the fields to make the tomatoes grow better. When Tomatoes Met Wagner contrasts the absurd discrepancy between production conditions and market expectations with the inspiring motivation of people who strive to continue despite everything.
