It’s been two years since fisherman Tio Peque lost his home and all his possessions in the 2010 tsunami that hit Chile. Carolina lost the fishing ship her father left her. Despite the odds, both have been trying to repair their damaged lives.
Amidst complicated bureaucratic issues and political interests, the villagers of Tumbes -mostly fishermen- are still living in emergency huts with deplorable sanitary conditions when it seems everyone else has moved on. The way they see it, they can either succumb to the sorrow of loss or adapt and move on.
This is a preview of the 35 minute documentary I wrote, produced, shot, directed and edited over the past year.
