documentary by Óscar Clemente and Sofía Trincao.
On the beach of Monte Gordo, a small community of traditional fishermen survive under the shadow of enormous tower blocks for tourism. These men and work are being threatened by industrial fishing techniques used by their neighbouring country, Spain.
This documentary reflects the life of the beach over the period of one year, from the lonely winter to the first sunny days of a hustling summer.
director and script:: Óscar Clemente and Sofía Trincao.
