“Terra Nova” (Newfoundland) is based on the book “O Lugre” by Bernardo Santareno, and tells the story of the codfish lugger Terra Nova, when in a bad fishing year, the captain decides to risk a never before sailed route to Greenland.
While the crew battles storms and the cold North Atlantic, we follow the drama of Albino, a fisherman who has fallen into disgrace after a shipwreck, and is now considered “bad luck” for the luggers he boards.
Albino tries to protect Miguel, a young orphan who looks up to him, despite the antagonism of some fishermen.
With the increasing difficulties of the voyage, the conflict intensifies and Albino fears that if the sea doesn’t kill him, maybe one of them will, if he doesn’t kill them first.
Although the captain leads the ship with an iron fist, he is unable to prevent a mutiny that compromises the purpose of the voyage.
In an open-air cinema format, the curtains open at 9:30 pm, with free entrance limited to the capacity of the space.
