Fraises amères

Every year, a circular migration program signed between Spain and Morocco sees thousands of legal seasonal workers arrive on Iberian soil. Saloua Amrani, a 43-year-old Moroccan widow, thus spends four months a year, away from her five children, two of whom are infants, harvesting strawberries in Andalusia to support her family. Bitter Strawberries offers an intimate view of the female experience of seasonal work.
