Halfway between a making-of film and an cinematic essay on the process of a film workshop directed by Abbas Kiarostami, this experimental film takes us into the process of creating a short film.

High Tide. Annotations on the margins of a short film

This short film is born from the discarded video material during the process of a film workshop given by Abbas Kiarostami at the International Film and Television School of San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba.

A female narrator is the informative vehicle where we get to know the ideas of a filmmaker who is doing the workshop and at the same time spinning a story that must take place between Caribbean beaches, a colonial historical city center and a group of enthusiastic filmmakers.
