SYNOPSIS

The limit between land and sea is magical, just like mermaids who, the story goes, are fish below their waistlines. There are so many other legends about these creatures. For example, it is said they are the owners of the water, and that they offer great feasts to the men they make fall in love with them. Yet the inhabitants of Bilwi, a fisherman town in Nicaragua, seem to have lost the mermaids‚Äô fondness ‚Äď divers go to the bottom of the sea, only to come back with their bodies paralyzed to a violence-ridden land. Luis Rinc√≥n explores that limit, beneath and over the sea, with shadows that reflect fish scales on the skin on their inhabitants; a place where conflict cohabits with the beauty of the space.
