Ashore. A fisherman between water and land

Ashore portrays the life of a singular fisherman in an ancient riverfront community near Lisbon.

Divided between the quiet solitude of the river and the family ties that wash him ashore, the film follows Albertino Lobo, as nature renews itself with each season cycle.
