As part of the International Village Show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Leipzig (GfZK), we're hosting a special screening of our film entitled 'Pickers', which was produced during our latest trip to Kent. The film tells stories of picking past and present, and features a few familiar faces from the Company Drinks team of volunteers. With the latest drinks behind the bar: Company Cider with gleaned apples from Kent and Thinning Soda.

“The film explores the shared ‘foreigness’ of today’s (now threatened) eastern European fruit pickers working in Kent and the east London communities who migrated to the same rural landscape for working holidays in the early twentieth century”.

This project was produced with the support of the Delfina Foundation and MUF Architecture.
