Examining The Upcoming Film Fishing Without Nets – Too Ambitious For Its Own Good?
Over the past few years, the world has seen some amazing films. Some of these films have been ambitious, but the upcoming Vice-produced movie, Fishing Without Nets, takes that concept to a whole new level! The American filmmaker Cutter Hodierne, who was just 26 years old at the time, traveled to East Africa, where he directed the movie. Despite being young, this is not the first time Cutter has taken on a big role! In 2009, at just 22, he was hired by the band, U2, to film the group’s U2 360 Tour.
Of course, his brand new film, Fishing Without Nets, is something far bigger. The film uses Kenyan actors and has quickly become a smashing success! In fact, it managed to secure Cutter the Directing Away of US Dramatic Film at the Sundance Film Festival. So, what is it about? Well, Fishing Without Nets follows a Somali, who decides to join a piracy mission only to attempt to back out in the future. Cutter admits he wants to explore the real reason behind piracy and hopes that the film will be able to answer that question for the audience.
The film opened at The Cinefamily Theater in Los Angeles, California on September 26, 2014. It was also played in New York, before the film was expanded throughout the country. Those that are unable to watch the film in theaters will be able to watch it on demand after October the 28th! The film is definitely a must-see for anyone, who is interested in East Africa or piracy. It is a thrill ride from start to finish.
