El cerco

The fence
by Nacho Martin, Ricardo Iscar Documentary Spagna 2005 12'

This short documentary portrays the Almadraba tuna fish catch in the Straits of Gibraltar. Almadraba tuna is caught by an elaborate, age-old Arabic technique of setting nets in a maze that traps the fish as they return to the Mediterranean to reproduce. A ritual of hunt, blood and death depicted in seppia photography and masterfully directed to capture the movement and dynamics in a harsh battle between man and animal.
