THE GRAPES OF WRATH

THE GRAPES OF WRATH
Based on the novel of John Steinbeck • Direction: Rafael Sanchez

The deconstruction of the American dream is at the centre of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel THE GRAPES OF WRATH. John Steinbeck tells in it the story of the Joad farming family from Oklahoma who, after years of drought, gives up their old life and sets out on a journey along Route 66. Their destination: California. But the Californian Dream recedes continuously further into the distance as the migrants only encounter swindlers, exploitation, and exclusion in the West. This is the story of the hour, revealing the connections between the economic crisis, the migration movement and climate change.
