Images that transport us to other time.

The olive harvest has changed dramatically over the past two decades. Machines began to replace people and began changing work modes.

The way that this tradition was alive was passing it from generation to generation, parents taught their children year after year. Today this cycle stopped, the olive harvest is mechanized and this knowledge falls invariably in oblivion.

With this documentary the author intends to keep a faithful time freeze of one way of doing things, forgotten, lost in time. It shows how for centuries the olive is picked up from the buckling to the traditional clean, is a trip to the past, a trip to a time still alive in the memories of many.
