More Info IMDb

Filmed in the remote fishing village of Juan Antonio, Cuba, just before it disappeared nuder the obliterating force of a hurricane, EL ÁRBOL DE LAS FRESAS (THE STRAWBERRY TREE) is a mesmerizing cinematic poem that tests the boundaries between anthropology, documentary and reverie. The villagers’ ingeniousness and resilience, as well as their
playful and irreverent relationship with the filmmaker, render a sensitive portrait of a unique culture into a reflection on documentary filmmaking and on humanity on the edge of time. EL ÁRBOL DE LAS FRESAS won the Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Cine Las Americas International Film festival in 2012.
