    • Synopsis
    • The documentary "Trades with face" shows us in all its variety a sample of the tasks that keep, over time, a good part of the Andalusian culture. Throughout the entire Community, craftsmen who perform a job that is carried in the blood, because it was transmitted by the father, the mother or a teacher. They can not be accommodated only within the economy, but they extend their value to culture; that of a locality, or of a whole region, that preserves them with pride, as symbols of their identity.
      They suppose a way of life, because they continue to be executed in the same way. Although many generations have passed, and the centuries and all of their changes have passed, we see the same tools, the same objective, a technique that does not change. In addition, those artisan works have a face behind. The faces of men and women who know a task that includes a great part of vocation and rite. They have received a legacy that implies the responsibility of transferring it to another generation. And that motivates them to be concerned with the feeling that their culture lives through the effort applied in each day.
      Kneading bread, leather or wood. Chopping grapes, a cave or a cork oak. Carving wood, melting bronze, smelling tropical fruit or fermented grape.
