General view of Burano, a small island in the Venetian lagoon.
M/S pan of buildings and gondolas reflected in a canal. Several shots of locals sitting by the side of the canal, mending and cleaning fishing nets. Ducks feed on heaps of shells of shrimplike fish.
Several shots of an old woman making lace. Good C/Us of her fingers at work and her face with pince-nez balanced on the end of her nose. We see other lace makers at work and a little blonde girl beside the old woman. Quick shots compare the lace making with fishing net making. C/Us of pieces of finished lace work.
