Now, Forager Screenings

Synopsis:  Lucien and Regina are foragers – they gather wild mushrooms and sell them to New York restaurants. Their lifestyle is simple, their income unstable. As Regina seeks more stability and Lucien wants to devote himself to full-time nomadic foraging, their individual desires put the marriage to a test.  The film premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, and recently screened at New Directors/New Films Festival.
