Cry Sea

Il mare piange
by Cafi Mohamud, Luca Cusani Documentary Italia/Italy 2007 57'

A clash between two civilizations, between different ways of using the ocean's resources: every year 500 European fishing trawlers outfitted with advanced technologies and an agreement with the Senegalese government worth millions of eurosply the waters off the coast of Senegal. Every day Senegalese fishermen set out in 15,000 pirogues to catch what is left over from this illegal competition, relying on knowledge of sea currents and amulet divination. But tragedy is imminent: expert estimates say that within a couple of decades there will be no more fish to catch.
