The Catalan award-winning movie ‘Alcarràs’ has grossed €1.06 million in cinemas since it premiered on April 29. More than 188,000 people have watched it in the 230 movie theaters where it is being screened. 

Over the first weekend, only 169 cinemas screened the film that won the Berlinale Golden Bear. The movie directed by Carla Simón sold 56,000 tickets, garnering €404,000. 

The number of cinemas where it was being shown increased a week later, making the movie the second most-watched film in Spain, behind Marvel’s Doctor Strange. ‘Alcarràs’ has been the most-watched film in 50 cinemas, and the second most-watched in over 60

‘Alcarràs’ tells the story of the last fruit harvest that a family goes through on their farm before they must leave the land after the owners decide to install solar panels. It’s a tribute to rural life, family farms, and respectful agriculture, and made history as the first-ever Catalan film to take the biggest award at one of the most prestigious international film festivals in the world in Berlin in February.
