The completed film screened at the 2017 Berlinale where it won the Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury and the GWFF Best First Feature Award. The film went on to win three Goya Awards and more than 30 prizes all over the world. Alcarràs is Carla’s second feature.

For as long as they can remember, the Solé family has spent every summer picking the peaches in their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain’s Catalonia region. But this year’s crop may well be their last, as they face eviction. The new plans for the land, which include cutting down the peach trees and installing solar panels, cause a rift in this large, tight-knit family. For the first time, they face an uncertain future and risk losing more than their orchards and, their home.
