At the rate set by their lives, Asina documents the daily life of Fuerteventura families, immersed in livestock activities on the island. A way of life based on a deep knowledge of an especially arid territory. This wisdom arising from adaptation continues to survive on a stage of fragility, where the traditional ways of life evolve towards the fields of folklore or new forms of economy such as building or tourism. Enshrouded in a constant wind, people, landscapes and animals are presented as a single reality.
