    • Synopsis
    • Mañana Al Mar is a documentary about sensuality and growing old. A poetic and impressionistic film shot on 16mm film, it captures the unique spirit of a group of senior citizens in Barcelona who have found an extraordinary way of growing old.
      Paulina, one of characters, is disabled and walks with a crutch. She spends hours transfixed by the sea, allowing herself to be seduced by the call of the waves into taking her daily dip. The walk across the sand is slow and difficult but as soon as the gentle waves touch her feet she abandons the crutch and dives into the water. She plays in the surf like a young dolphin, singing Cuban love songs at the top of her voice.
