Tribute to the work and effort of the Algarve tuna fishermen, filming what would become the last almadraba or “companha” made by them, since shortly after the film was finished the sea destroyed this Algarve arraial. The sound was made in 1974, with the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
