Experimental documentary about the disappearance of traditional fishing methods in Galicia, which questions new directions in the industry.

“SALITRE NAS VEAS”

Man and sea are unknown to each other. The sea hides its treasures, in the same way that man keeps his secrets. Man and sea fight against time, against their own extinction, but they respect each other equally.

“HOMES DE XEO”

The Scientist Jesús Troncoso, Head Chef Pablo Alías and Sea Captain Santiago Muradas all have something in common: they are Galicians who spent 6 months living together aboard the ship ‘Hespérides’, sailing around the Antarctic. Thanks to their work in the South Pole, we can better understand the evolution of climate change, and what it is like to live far from land.
