Virgin & Extra: The Land of the Olive Oil (Jaén: Virgen & Extra)

Part of the CineCuisine Strand

Body

This is a fascinating documentary exploring the history and heritage of the ubiquitous olive oil in Jaén, where almost half the olive oil in Spain is produced. The passion of all those involved in its production, and the sense of pride and respect for tradition is infectious. The film shines a light on the complexity of the product, the diversity of its flavours, its many different hues and characters, and its varied use in cooking, together with its status as a superfood and many recognised health benefits – as one expert says, ‘Olive oil is sustenance.’ [U]
