SWEET CHERRY, by Kevin Millet, is a colorful portrait of the workers who travel to Canada to pick cherries. It's partially to work, but also for the experience. Set to funky music by Movement, the film is a creative testament to the variety of people who come to find summertime work in the fruit-picking industry. More of Millet's work can be found on his website.
