This year's DiVaM program ends this Sunday, December 3rd, with the screening, at 16pm, of the documentary “A Fortaleza dos Pescadores”, at the Sagres Fortress. 

This is a project by ATGDM – Association of Lands and People of the Mediterranean Diet.

«The work mainly addresses the relationship between fishermen and Fortaleza and the various phases this relationship has gone through. If, before 1997, the Fortaleza had its doors open 24 hours a day, allowing cane fishing at any time, a change of direction in the destination and management of the monument changed reality and created moments of tension with the local community, especially with fishermen", reads the synopsis.

The documentary, conceived between June and November, was directed and filmed by Ana Medeira, with a script by Fúlvia Almeida, original music by Diogo Russo and aerial images by Carlos Neto.
