We are delighted to announce that The Golden Harvest will have its world premier at the Thessaloniki International Festival. We are honored to be selected to be part of this great festival. Not to mention that it is the country with highest per capita consumption of olive oil in the world. And in a country that we filmed in. And that three of the crew members are from —Dimitris Kanellopoulos, who did the location sound, and Alex Asplind, second camera everywhere but Thrace, and Theo Geront, second camera in Thrace.
A documentary film involves so many people—and we had an incredible group in five countries. And so many people who offered their help tirelessly, like Diana Farr Louis in Athens, and great musicians who let us their music—Marcel Khalife, Ali Jihad Racy, Enzo Fina, Alkis Zopoglou, and Omar Bashir. And it was all brought together with new music from Osama Abdul Rasool. In the end, it comes down to the director and the editor, in this case producer Jaime Estrada-Torres. We hope you enjoy the trip to the olive trees!
