The wine the world and us is a feature documentary about the recent history of sherry wine. We could say that it is mainly an economic and social chronicle around this wine in the twentieth century.
The 20th century radically changed the way we produce, trade and consume products from all over the planet.
Inevitably, even millennial industries were left on the road.
In 2009 the director of this documentary – born in the original Sherry wine production area – began to collect first-hand accounts of what life had been like around this great industry where in the last decades of the century 4 out of every 5 jobs and companies had been lost. After the testimonies, he began to spend time with winemakers and to film throughout the seasons traditional and industrial scenes of what was Sherry Wine at the 21st.
In november 2019 the film was premiered at the Most Penedès film festival, which is an international reference festival among those dedicated to the culture of vineyards and wine. There we were awarded with the International Projection award.
In 2020 – a year that unfortunately we will never forget – we have screened in movie theaters and we have been to 52 Alcances, the most prestigious documentary festival in Andalusia. Likewise, we have been invited to the 65 SEMINCI in Valladolid among the three films in the #CineyVino oficial section. We have celebrated the Most Penedès X Anniversary being part of the special selection and having had a great rating on Filmin by spectators (8’8/10). We have been to the BIFED, international documentary festival on ecology in Bozcaada, land of wine too; there we sell out the tickets. At the end of November 2020 we have screened in Moscow, at the Museum of Cinema, in the official competitive section of AMBROSIA Food & Drink Film Festival. We were the film scheduled to close the contest and clasified by the jury as “finalist”.
