  00:28:00  2006  Color  Sound

In the North-West of Portugal, the owners made and use a simple and original tool: “la cana”, in order to share the irrigation water. This cana consists in a calibrated reed stick, used to measure the volumes of water. From its making to the water distribution between the different plots, the film shows the relationships between the owners thanks to this activity.
