Under the Fig Trees
February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:32 pm
One summer day in a fig orchard in northwest Tunisia, a crew of workers arrive at dawn to begin work on the seasonal harvest. A casual meeting ground where men and women from different generations can interact with less formality than they would in town, the orchard also represents a relic of rural ways of life stuck in the past. The young women are reminded that the small taste of freedom and fun their work provides them with comes with its own limitations.
