Gondola - A Venetian Story

Venice through the eyes of the gondoliers – an unusual perspective.

The gondoliers are part of Venice, they are Venice. Their profession gives them a view of the City of Canals that is like no other. They particularly get to see the ugly side of the mass tourism that threatens to suffocate the city. Through the eyes and words of the gondoliers, the documentary aims to present a different perspective on the city, its people and its future. Few people know Venice as well as the gondoliers, but to date, no one has really asked them about it.
