Documentary / English

A film that looks and sounds like nothing you have ever experienced.


This stunning documentary immerses the audience in the sights and sounds of a voyage of a battered old Atlantic Ocean fishing trawler, detailing the cycle of violent encounters of men, fish, birds, and machines. At times hallucinatory and disorientating, at times gorgeous and abstract, the film will leave no viewer unaffected. An astonishing sensory experience.
