Traditional olive harvesting

Jorge Sarmento | Trás-os-Montes, Portugal

Beating the olive tree to topple the olive.

 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 thet 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 work the author intends to keep a faithful retracto one way of doing things forgotten, lost in time.

This documentary 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.
