WINE CRUSH (VAS-Y COUPE!)
DOC NYC 2019
A portrait of seasonal labor at a family-owned French vineyard.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Director Laura Naylor presents an observational portrait of seasonal labor during the harvest of a family-owned vineyard in France’s Champagne region. Many of the hired hands have returned year after year for decades, becoming part of the celebrated vintner’s extended family. Their closeness lends an affectionate tone to scenes of their everyday activities – work, meals, and off-hours revelry. But as the next generation begins to take over the business in a challenging economy, will these loyal workers survive the transition?
