Full Frame: The Fruit Hunters

10:20am - 12:20pm Cinema 3
“Do you feel the weight of fallen dynasties when you devour a lychee?” We barely take a moment to feel a piece of fruit’s firmness and to enjoy its scent. What’s happened to our passion? We’ve been in wars over fruit! The Fruit Hunters revives the passion, recklessness, and spontaneity of humanity’s long involvement with these gifts of nature. A fruit detective searches for vintage figs in European monasteries using clues from Renaissance paintings. In Asia, a pair of adventurers search for an exotic mango before loggers have their way with the land. Actor Bill Pullman works to create a community orchard in Hollywood and speaks about the effort with the same kind of fervor he brought to the role of president in the blockbuster Independence Day. A scientist attempts to breed a hardier strain of the delicate Cavendish banana. The passion of these hunters, as well as the film’s erotic, sensual cinematography, will light the spark we’ve all been missing. JM
