The Fruit Hunters

No pick of the day today. Instead, here’s a heads up about a documentary by Montreal director Yung Chang that should “a peel” to anyone who likes bananas, mangos, figs and all the other types of fruit, both familiar and exotic, that are out there.

Inspired by a book by fellow Montrealer Adam Leith, The Fruit Hunters explores the world of people who are passion(ate about) fruit.

The Fruit Hunters screens at the RPL March 28 and 30 at 7 p.m., and March 29 and 31 at 9 p.m. Here’s the trailer:

  1. Western civilization hits it apogee in 1971 when Leonard Cohen and his small local entourage spent the lost weekend naked on a small island of Crete eating nothing but banana, mangos, passion fruit, and figs, probably dabbling in some softcore drugs, reading poetry and acting out scenes from Sophocles with a comedic, western twist.

    Sadly, I was not there, I was not born, and I’m not sure this is in the doc or recorded anywhere I know this happened. The Cubs went 83-79.
