When Tomatoes Met Wagner (2020)

An uplifting Oscar nominee from Greece is a treat about farmers in a small village who produce organic tomatoes to the music of Richard Wagner.

When Tomatoes Met Wagner is a fun and frank portrait of the challenges of bringing sustainable and environmentally friendly artisanal products to the masses.

Economou’s filmmaking favours the hand-crafted and artisanal style, and reflects the work ethic of the villagers. With its sunny aesthetic and approach that’s as laid-back and no-frills as the villagers’ operation, When Tomatoes Met Wagner remains optimistic despite the hurdles its subjects face. It offers an ideal to which audiences can aspire. Perhaps savouring the local is better for the planet in the long run.
