"El Cerco" is to take part in Sundance

The industry in...

"El Cerco" remains on its outstanding course around the world's festivals, including the Berlinale, where it received the Prix UIP for the Best European Short Film, and its nomination for the European Film Awards. The film, shot near Cadiz, shows 12 minutes of La Almadraba, a centuries-old form of fishing introduced to the Spanish mainland by Arabic peoples: “Every year, thousands of tuna fish migrate to the Mediterranean. Men chase them in a ritual of blood and death: 300 tuna fish are trapped into a ring of nets. Terrified, the animals start beating their tails, turning the circle into a huge water curtain. Images of nature overwhelmed”.
