Volveran Las Naves

Peru, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Gianfranco Annichini

"This beautiful Peruvian film captivated me with the simplicity of its concept and its beautiful imagery which
betrays a personal visual style. A grandson asks his grandfather about the old days then we see how even
today the fishermen ply their trade just like their forefathers." Eva Schmid, Oberhausen selector
