Vision du Reél : Film « DOMINGO DOMINGO »
By: Laura Garcia Andreu
Domingo Domingo is an extroverted and go-getter farmer. In English, his name would be ‘Sunday Sunday’. He is a junkie of life and doesn’t know how to live without adrenaline. Now he has a new obsession: oranges. However, he knows that everything has changed. Oranges don’t belong to farmers anymore. The big corporations have started to patent the best varieties of oranges and are forcing the farmers to buy them. But Domingo is not one of those who kneels in front of anyone. In fact, he believes he can play the same game. He has a ‘perfect’ plan: a secret tree where he is growing a new variety of oranges that could be the best one. Domingo will get the first oranges from his secret tree in a year. Then we will know if he gets the patent. If he wins the game he will achieve his goals: to beat the big corporations, to make a fortune selling the patent, and to enjoy every day of his life like it was a Sunday.
This film has just had its world premiere in the official section ‘Newcomers competition 2023’ of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
