THE HARPOON

Italy

  • Added to SNEAK PREVIEWS

    For over 2000 years in Sicily survives the extraordinary swordfish hunt with the harpoon. Nino is one of the best hunters of the Strait.

    His son Giuseppe is old enough to grasp the harpoon, but he is unsure whether he is able to kill and seize the legacy of this millennial hunting tradition. Giuseppe, a nature lover, is majoring in marine biology at the University.

    For a young fisherman, killing the swordfish with harpoon is an initiation rite, but Giuseppe is torn between the meaning of an ancestral tradition, and the ethic values of life and nature protection. http://www.terra.tv.it
