Strength of the living

Last Days at Sea Venice Atienza

This meditative film drifts along to the gentle rhythm of a fishing village in the southern Philippines, where Reyboy, like a crab coming out of its shell, is getting ready to leave to attend high school in the city. Steeped in the melancholy of imminent departure, filmmaker Venice Atienza’s work captures the coastal community’s everyday life and lingers on the magnificent scenery. The innocence and joy of childhood freedom are picked up with great sensitivity in her off-screen conversations with Reyboy, as a true rapport is established between the two. Like the ocean waves, Last Days at Sea brings to the surface small treasures of untold worth. (Programming Collective)
