The Golden Harvest is a 6,000-year old love story in which the filmmaker tries to understand the profound, often troubled, relationship between olive tree and the people of Mediterranean, including her own father. Her journey takes her to unexpected places as an increasingly diverse cast of characters get involved in unraveling this tale. It is a complicated romance, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic that is constantly evolving in a region that includes some of the poorest and most conflicted areas of Europe and the Middle East.

The screening is organized in collaboration with our Institute/Embassy of Italy to the UAE, Cinema Space, Dhakira Center of Heritage Studies (NYUAD), Palestinian Business Council, Bodytree Wellness Studio.
