Dublin Greek Film Festival 2019

When Tomatoes Met Wagner

The Dublin Greek Film Festival and the Chester Beatty are proud to present, When Tomatoes Met Wagner. Elias, a small farming village in central Greece, is dying out. Two cousins decide to team up with the village grannies to cultivate the tomato seeds they have kept for hundreds of years. With a little help from Wagner’s music –which they use to help their tomatoes grow– the team succeeds to export little jars with organic tomato recipes across the world. This beautiful bitter-sweet comedy tells the tale of reinvention, hardship and rejuvenation. The question is posed to us, “How do we change the world without a revolution?”

Greek, English. 2019 (73 min).  Followed by a wine reception sponsored by Gaia Wines.  Admission €14 per person, booking essential.
