Ama Girls (1958)
User ReviewsReview this title
This short film takes us for a fascinating look at a day in the life of a Japanese fishing village. We see how the lives of everyone is concerned in some way with the sea and harvesting its bounty. Special focus is given to the AMA GIRLS, those healthy young maidens who dive up to 60 feet beneath the waves in search of choice sea weed to sell. Scenes of domestic life are also shown, as well as how the entire village works together to process the valuable sardine catch.
`This film is one in a series presenting interesting PEOPLE and the PLACES in which they live. All scenes are authentic and the stories are factual.' The narrator is Winston Hibler.
