Here’s a note from the director of The Golden Harvest:
My name is Alia. I lived in a house only once in my life. For three years. It was in Minnesota in what was a kind of small town back then called White Bear Lake. I was six but I still remember the couple who lived in the house before us saying to my parents that they never had a chance to plant the yard because they had their hands full with a teenage girl that was always in trouble. That’s why they were moving. I wanted to know more about that girl but I was sent out to that empty yard. My dad planted trees in the empty backyard . They were little sticks then. A few years ago, I went to a look. No olive trees, but great apple and plum trees that are now taller than the house. Trees tell so many stories, and I tried to tell some in The Golden Harvest.
