Directed by Cláudia Varejão | 2016

This dreamy documentary spotlights the ancient Japanese tradition of the ama: “sea women” who carry on the age-old practice of diving for pearls and abalone just as their ancestors did, without air tanks or modern scuba gear. In a rush of gorgeous, mysterious images, Portuguese director Cláudia Varejão captures the rituals and rhythms of a close-knit community of women who keep the past alive even as modernity encroaches.
