“Reyboy, 12 ans, va bientôt quitter son village natal de Karihatag pour aller à l’école en ville. Reyboy aime la mer, le bruit constant des vagues dans ses oreilles et regarder vers le l’horizon qui s’étend devant ses yeux. La petite communauté dans laquelle vit sa famille subit stoïquement les défis de la pauvreté, de la surpêche et de l’exode rural.”

“Worrying for what tomorrow may bring is vital, but Atienza telling us to focus on the present, to try to gaze at the things life’s harshness often obscures from our sights, deepens the slippery Filipino idea of what hope and what connects to it is, with tempered sweetness and bitterness
rendering it familiar once again to our sights through empathy.”

“Last Days by the Sea” is a film about saying goodbye and growing up. Like the little hermit crab that Reyboy holds in his hand, the boy grows out of his shell and has to look for a new one. “That’s tough,” says Reyboy and laughs.

Business Doc Europe Reviews “Last Days at Sea”

“The tantalising glimpses into life in a remote fishing village
in the Philippines acts as a perfect and evocative backdrop
for director Venice Atienza’s engaging and absorbing debut film, which follows 12 year-old Reyboy as he spends his final summer before leaving to study in the city.”
