“Tears of the Olive” takes the viewer on a magical journey into the ancient culture of olive oil production.

What is the secret of olive oil and how is it won?
What distinguishes the olive tree?
And what significance does the olive have for human culture?

On the Podere Usignolo, in Tuscany, sustainability and harmony with nature are practiced and a special olive oil is produced together with diligent helpers.
Exactly this unique atmosphere and this beautiful piece of earth presents this film.
In the soft glow of the autumnal sun, olives are picked with bare hands.

The film “Tears of the Olive” accompanies us on a journey to the origin of olive oil culture and the importance of personal happiness.
