Harvest Queen

Lúcia Pires

“Harvest Queen” tells the story of a mysterious woman who appeared in the West of Portugal, in the beginning of the 20th century, but to whom no one has ever been able to see the face. At the same time, another woman tries to become a wine producer. The film proposes a reflection on the feminine and it connection to the land, but also a challenge for the viewer so he might question their own beliefs.”
