Half Yard

Observational documentary that focuses on the daily lives of a group of seven fishermen from Egypt on Lesvos island who work and live on a fishing boat - as is the case for thousands of their compatriots all over Greece. Scenes of fishing, along with practices of daily living on a traditional fishing boat, throw light on some unknown strands of the life of these men in the sea, far away from their families, next to the glimpses of passers-by, the lights and the life around the vessel. [Directors note_ I sugest the screening of the film without subtitles in a way to trasmit the feeling of being an osservator on board.
