Virgin & Extra: Jaén, The Land Of The Olive Oil




Genre: Documentary
Spain, 2018, 90'
Director: José Luis López-Linares
Olive oil is an essential ingredient of the Mediterranean diet. In the early 21st century a revolution broke out in Jaén: Picual, the most emblematic of its olives, but historically rather underrated, may well produce the best extra virgin olive oil in the world.


This documentary introduces us to the challenges raised by this change seen through the eyes of the people from the Jaén olive groves, of the chefs who have seen in this change a revolution in terms of gastronomy and of the olive-producers and consumers. It also reveals the hidden beauty of one of Spain’s least-known provinces.
