Isle of Flowers (1989)

03/23/1990 (US) Documentary 13m

A place where there are very few flowers.


A tomato is planted, harvested and sold at a supermarket, but it rots and ends up in the trash. But it doesn’t end there: Isle of Flowers follows it up until its real end, among animals, trash, women and children. And then the difference between tomatoes, pigs and human beings becomes clear.
