Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
(Henry David Thoreau)
F.I.S.H.I.N.G is both a refreshing and exceptional film dedicated to what may well be the most remarkable national sport in the Netherlands: fishing. In this 90 minutes’ documentary, the filmmakers unprejudicedly dive into an unknown world of anglers and fish. Above water and underneath it. Two parallel worlds, carefully separated by the water surface.
F.I.S.H.I.N.G is a cinematic quest for the primitive fishing instinct in mankind.
