About:
An exploration of the tensions between traditional fishing practices and animal rights activism.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
One of Scotland’s last salmon fishing families is accused of animal rights violations. Constantly followed and recorded by environmental watchdog groups, the Pullar family attempts to pursue its livelihood using hunting practices passed down for generations. Tensions escalate when the government becomes involved. Is there a future for their traditional way of fishing? Nuanced and carefully balanced, Heike Bachelier and Andy Heathcote’s film questions where the line is drawn when trying to both preserve wildlife populations and support local industry.
