Ama-San, dir. Cláudia Varejão, Portugal / Switzerland 2016, 113 mins, Japanese with English subtitles


For over 2,000 years, female shellfish divers, known as ama-san, have fished for abalone off the coast of Japan. Focusing on three women who have spent decades diving together near a small fishing village on the Shima peninsular, and shot between the silent, underwater world and rural life on land, Ama-San is a unique portrait of an ancient custom which is at risk of disappearing.
