The cinematographic harvest in the Priorat
This year’s programming is back in favor of the abundance and heterogeneity in the cinema around the wine. The Collita 2017 section , focusing exclusively on wine-growing themes , has 12 films and feature films from 15 countries as diverse as Chile, Portugal, the United States and Serbia.Three of these sessions will take place at Priorat, Falset and Cornudella de Montsant .

The first session of Most at Priorat presents the documentary Bitter Grapes , in which Danish Tom Heinemann investigates and denounces the dehumanized treatment given to workers in the South African wine industry; It will be Saturday 4th November at 6pm at the Falset-Marçà de Falset Cooperative.

The following week, on Thursday 9, the Renaissance Theater of Cornudella de Montsant hosts the screening of the documentary Sour Grapes , filmmakers Jerry Rothwell and Reuben Atlas, on the case of forgery of luxury wines discovered in 2012 in California. And, finally, La guerre du vin , will take center stage in the last evening of Most in the Priorat. The French film Sebastien Le Corre analyzes the wake left by farmers who on March 4, 1976 began, leaving aside the official union, the revolt of the agricultural committees with which they demanded the regulation of the wine market in Europe , and that left a wine grower killed by firing at Montredon-des-Corbières.

This year the Artesana de Falset will also host students from the Priorat training centers in two Most’s sessions in schools , an activity that aims to bring young students closer to the two realities that fuse the festival, cinema and wine. Specifically, the students will attend the schools of secondary education of Falset and Cornudella and the students of the School of Oenology Jaume Ciurana.

The jury of the Collita section, which will be Judith Colell, Imma Merino, Damià Serrano, Ruth Troyano and Anna Vicens, will determine the winners of the seven prizes of this selection.
