This is another vintage movie of Madeira I found on Youtube, …. filmed in 1969 in a location somewhere in Funchal.

This one shows the manufacturing of special fishing lines that was used to catch the fish Espada. The yarn was crafted and slicked with oil from crushed bark and roots. The film material is unedited (no sound), 16mm shot with a Paillard Bolex, spring-wound / manual camera, which only allowed up to 20 seconds takes.
