LIRA: AN ENCLAVE OF LIFE ON THE COAST OF DEATH (LIRA: RESERVA DE VIDA NA COSTA DA MORTE) (Spain, 2010, 57 min.)

United States Premiere For the fishing community of LIRA, located on Spain’s “Costa da Morte,” the spill from The Prestige, an oil tanker, has spawned innovative approaches to the problems of overfishing and overall health of the sea. The disaster has led this community to establish the first Marine Reserve for Fishing Interests, called Os Miñarzos, to serve the needs of local fisheries. The project is increasingly becoming a model for other similar communities around the world. In Galego and Spanish with English subtitles. Directed by Marcos Gallego Fernández.

Introduced by Guillermo Corral, Cultural Counselor, Embassy of Spain.
