Spanish

A Conserveira (The Cannery) is a portrait of one of the last Galician canneries where the entire canning process is still performed manually and traditionally. Throughout the production day, from sunrise and the start of the working day, until the workers leave the factory, we witness the full range of processes involved in producing the final product. Smoke, vapour and repetitive mechanical noises form a symphony amongst the fish, the machines and the expressions in the faces of the workers. A few months after this film was made, the cannery was destroyed in a fire.
