Etienne Kallos meets us again here in Rome, after his debut in Cannes with his first feature The Harvesters. The Harvesters is an extremely riveting coming-of-age film in the deep lands of South Africa, where the land is as tumultuous as the Afrikaaners’ spirit. The Harvesters won Rome Film Fest’s jury prize for best first film.
The Harvesters: South Africa, Free State region, isolated stronghold to the Afrikaans white ethnic minority culture. In this conservative farming territory obsessed with strength and masculinity, Janno is different, secretive, emotionally frail.
