Ilha das Flores (Island of Flowers)

This is the ironic saga of a tomato. Beginning life on Mr Suzuki’s farm, the tomato is sold to a supermarket, where it is bought by Mrs Anete. At home, Mrs Anete decides the tomato is spoiled and throws it in the garbage. Together with the rest of the trash, the tomato is taken to a landfill. There, the best organic material becomes food for pigs, while the rest is given to poor women and children. A modern classic, Ilha das Floresis widely considered one of the greatest short films ever made.
