“The Edge of The Sea” tells the story of Edwin 'Pauco' Font, a 61-year old third generation fisherman from Rincón, Puerto Rico. Since the late 1960's, Puerto Rico and small fishing villages like Rincón, have undergone expansive costal development, driven by tourism and the growing demand for beachfront property. “The Edge of the Sea”, follows Pauco in his battle against a local developer planning to build a mega condo project on one of Rincon’s most popular public beaches. This film, explores the issue of privatization of public areas, and the social and environmental consequences of excessive coastal development.
