Fifth List

Fifth List | Giselle Garcia Castro

Filmmaker’s statement

Fishermen from the ‘fifth list’ are the economic backbone and largest labor force in all fishermen communities in Cuba. Fishing is their sustain, culture and life. At the same time, they acknowledge that the future of fisheries depends on the balance between their economic needs, environmental preservation, governmental will, climate change impacts and other cultural factors. Several interests and stakeholders take part in this story, narrated by voices from five different coastal communities in Cuba.

We are ever so very grateful to our Patrons and Friends for supporting the festival.
