Pepe is an orange farmer in Villavell, Castellon, Spain. Working the citrus soil since a boy.

 

In 2018's harvest, a crisis hit the Spanish citrus sector. The price of the Valencian kilo went from 20 to 5 cents, as a result, many groves in the region have been left unharvested and many families without income.

 

Pepe walks amongst his unharvested land, nostalgic of more fruitful earnings and his life's incredible work. With no money to be made Pepe, now describes his life's work as a hobby. Watering, pruning, and turning the soil at the feet of 500 trees for the love of his land and the Naranjos.

With thanks to, Co-Net, Irene, Pepe and Antonio and the Imaginaria Festival.
