Hull Film Festival: The Gaze Of The Sea

Jose Alverez | 2016 | Mexico | 82 mins | Cert 18 | Spanish language with English subtitles

Documentary screening in partnership with Sheffield Doc/Fest.

Hortencia, a native woman from Tuxpan with a stormy past, journeys through sea and land to recover testimonies of the crew of a fishing boat that disappeared five years ago in Veracruz, Mexico. Gradually the journey becomes a reflection on the meaning of life and death, built around the mythologies and deepest yearnings of the people with whom she crosses.
