WHEN TOMATOES MET WAGNER

Dir: Marianna Economou
Greece / 2019 / 72mins

In a tiny Greek village, hit hard by the economic crisis, When Tomatoes Met Wagner finds two cousins thinking creatively about their farmland.

With ingenuity, patience and the help of five grannies, Christo and Alexandros are branching out into the international food market, exporting jars of their organic goods across the world. They may be up against cheaper, homogenised seeds and more regular produce, but their tomatoes have something special going for them - they ripen to sounds of Wagner.

Told with great warmth and humour, When Tomatoes Met Wagner is a study of reinvention, persistence and teamwork in the toughest of economic times.

We're delighted to welcome organic farmer and star of When Tomatoes Met Wagner Alexandros Gousiaris to join us for the Q&A following the UK premiere screening on 28th January.

Alexandros travelled from Greece for this event, thanks to the generous support of Odysea - who provided complimentary Greek snacks and nibbles to people attending this event.
