The open sea and a full net of fish; this documentary pays homage to Portuguese fishermen and their traditions.
The Portuguese have always been among the world’s best sailors, indeed many distant lands were discovered by them. Their lives have always been tightly bound to the sea on which they have had to depend. So it is no surprise that fishing, too, has a rich and varied tradition. This documentary of ethnological bent provides a detailed portrayal of modern fishermen and their traditional hunting methods, whether it be the use of nets and cages, clay vessels for catching octopi, or mussel gathering. This exquisitely filmed documentary gives voice to several generations of fishermen for whom the sea is their entire life.
