"Na Terra no na Lua" ("It's on Earth, not on the Moon") is a portrait of life on Corvo Island.

The Azorean world has always been a part of Goncalo Tocha's life, since some of his family members live on Sao Miguel Island. He went to Corvo for the first time to shoot this documentary, which took him four years to complete. Apart from winning DocLisboa, " na Terra no na Lua" was also given an honorable mention at the 2011 Locarno Festival, in Switzerland. Corvo is the smallest of the nine Azorean islands, being home to 500 people, but its cultural, architectural and gastronomic heritage is as unique as the 8 sister islands. In 2007, UNESCO classified it as Biosphere Reserve, thus internationally recognizing the island's singular environmental and cultural features.
