  • The Mother and the Sea

    2013. Portugal. Directed by Gonçalo Tocha. Mythical stories of the seafaring women of Portugal serve as the starting point for this cinematically majestic study of ethnography and place. The aging inhabitants of Vila Chã, a dramatic coastal village where the sound and sight of waves fill every corner, embody a history and a way of life shaped by the lure of the sea. 97 min.
