Factories at Sea is a poem about the use of language to understand the passage of time in the meager everyday world and the experience of facing issues such as community life, connection with nature, violence, and contemporary scenarios full of crises, people, and their objects. The film-poem was made with Víctor Font and the collaboration of Elizabeth Zuba, who translated the poem into English. A beautiful accomplishment by the duo, who share an interesting reflection on our relationship with nature and violence.
