Dir: Emiliano Mazza de Luca
Uruguay / 2016 / 80mins

Part of our The Lives of Others Season, bringing you tales from the four corners of the earth.

The fishing community of Nueva Venecia is like any other, with one extraordinary difference: The village is perched on stilts above Columbia’s Lake Tota, with homes, schools and even a soccer field floating just a few feet above the surface.

The film portrays the resilient citizens who manage a spirited way of life despite the rising tide and imminent threat of devastation.

To book please go the the Bertha DocHouse website.
