In this post-screening Q&A discussion, Rick Miller (Emcee) speaks with filmmakers Steve Sxwithul'txw & Camila Guarda, about the connection to the sea that First Nations' youth have to protecting their coastal territories, above and below the surface, and also how people in Chile who rely on fishing for their livelihood respect the ocean, especially via the perspective of women.
Filmed in the majestic but also dangerous vastness of the Chilean ocean, THE WOMEN AND THE SEA is a sensorial journey featuring two powerful women in a small fishing village. Gloria preserves the legacy of symbolic cemeteries for those lost at sea, while Julieta defies the looming presence of death as she works in the male dominated world of fishing.
