Legacy of the sea

Legacy of the Sea is an exploration of the stories of the port’s family. Juan Iglesias builds the meaning of being embarked in Pica I for more than 60 years, defying the fate of navigating the sea of Patagonia. Meanwhile, at the pier, the fishermen's mothers wait for their family to return alive. The sea, beloved and feared, with its magnetic attraction, forms a way of life for families, but at the same time it can become the grave of their children. The fascinating and deep sea of Patagonia is weaving thousands of stories into fishermen's nets.
